Rakuten Eagles send Yokogawa, Ino to Yomiuri Giants for Kaneto and Nakazawa

by on Nov.12, 2012 @ 9:14 am, under NPB

According to Nikkan Sport, the Yomiuri Giants and Rakuten Eagles have agreed on a two-for-two trade that will send Norihito Kaneto (28) and Hiroki Nakazawa (25) to Sendai in exchange for Fuminori Yokogawa (27) and Suguru Ino (28).

The trade will be announced by both teams in the next day or two.

In Kaneto, the Eageles get a much-needed left-handed arm that should help give the pitching staff a little more stability.  And Nakazawa is a right-handed bat with a decent glove that has experience playing all four infield positions.

The Giants got two players at positions that might get a little thin next season: Shinnosuke Abe may end up playing more game at first next season depending on the condition of his legs and Michihiro Ogasawara is still a question mark.
