[10/3/2013] Chiba Lotte Marines to part ways with Whitesell, Gonzalez

by on Oct.03, 2013 @ 2:16 pm, under NPB

The Chiba Lotte Marines are planning to part ways with thirty-four-year-old pitcher Dicky Gonzalez and thirty-one-year-old infielder Josh Whitesell.

Gonzalez pitched in only four Ichi-gun games this season and failed to secure a spot on the active roster.  Whitesell was taken off the active roster on May 6 with a right wrist injury and became expendable when the team signed Craig Brazell in June.

    Sad about Whitesell – the wrist injury really took away his opportunity to play at ichi-gun.

    The only surprise about the release of Gonzalez is that it hadn’t happened already. I think Itoh-kantoku said something to the effect of “He will never pitch for us again” back in July after that outing in Sendai?
