[6/3/2014] Rakuten Eagles in discussions with Rhiner Cruz

by on Jun.03, 2014 @ 1:54 pm, under NPB

According to at least two reports, the Rakuten Eagles are currently talking to twenty-seven-year-old pitcher Rhiner Cruz.  The two sides are closing in on a deal that might be pending a physical.  The Eagles see Cruz as someone that might be able to give them innings as a starter, even though he has spent most of his time pitching out of the bullpen.
