[5/19/2013] Hanshin Tigers are interested in Blaine Boyer

by on May.19, 2013 @ 11:25 am, under NPB

According to reports by Sanspo and Sponichi, the Hanshin Tigers are interested in thirty-one-year-old pitcher Blaine Boyer.  The Tigers are reportedly close to signing a deal with Boyer and could have something in place early next week.  Assuming no kinks in negotiations, the righty could be added to the active roster in mid-June (he will officially sign once he passes his physical and will then have to wait until his work visa comes through).

Sanspo adds that the Tigers lost interest in David Aardsma after they learned he was not interested in playing in Japan.

Sponichi notes that the Tigers also have Guillermo Moscoso, Tim Wood, and Clay Hensley on their list of potential candidates, but Boyer is their top priority.
