[9/28/2013] Hanshin Tigers looking into Travis Hafner, Lyle Overbay

by on Sep.28, 2013 @ 3:30 pm, under NPB

According to a reports by Sponichi, the Hanshin Tigers have included Travis Hafner (36) and Lyle Overbay (36) on their list of list of candidates to bat clean-up.  Both players are set to become free agents.  Hafner made about 196 million yen this year, Overbay about 122 million.  Money could be an issue, but a team official reportedly said they would be even be ok with dishing out 500 million if it meant getting a player that could provide the team with power.

  1. Tom Florkowski

    I follow the Yankees and both players. Hafner is not worth the money. One, He can only DH and can not play the the field any more and he his body Breaks Down with injuries. That is why Cleveland dumped him.He broke down with the Yankees also. OverBay be the better choice. I can play everyday, First Base and Right Field. Stays Healty and is a Left Handed batter. Has some pop, but is a nice Contact Hitter. GO FOR OVERBAY.

  2. Steve Novosel

    Tigers ought to try some actual scouting instead of just throwing some names around of older players they’re heard of.

    They have a really, really bad track record with these guys.

  3. JR

    Agree with Steve here. They seem to be infatuated with Americans with MLB experience, but Murton is the only foreign batter they have brought to Japan in the last decade who has made any type of significant contribution. We need to hire some scouts away from Chunichi or at least learn from them!
