[7/7/2013] Bay Stars send Naoto Watanabe to Seibu for Shuichiro Osada

by on Jul.07, 2013 @ 11:11 pm, under NPB

The Yokohama Bay Stars finalized a trade with the Seibu Lions that will see Naoto Watanabe (32) head to Saitama for reliever Shuichiro Osada (33).  The trade fit the needs for both teams: the Bay Stars wanted another arm to help bolster their pitching staff and the Lions asked for an infielder in return.

"We are struggling with our starters and middle relievers and can use as many options as possible.  We asked for Osada.  With the way our team is currently setup, Watanabe will not get much playing time and Seibu also said they wanted an infielder.  I think this was a good trade for both teams," said Yokohama GM Shigeru Takada.
