According to Nikkan Sports, the Hanshin Tigers are looking into a number of power-hitting option for the 2014 season that play first and bat clean-up. GM Katsuhiro Nakamura could end up flying to the US later this month or in early August to check on possibilities. Jeff Clement (29) is reportedly back on their list of potential candidates.
Nikkan Sports goes on to say that the Tigers also have their eye on Orix Buffaloes Dae-Ho Lee (can play first but will likely require a lot of money) and Aarom Baldiris (can play third but may not have the power the team is looking for).
