The Tigers appear to be close to some sort of a deal with the veteran reliever. According to Daily Sports, the organization is waiting to hear back from Tateyama. Sponichi is reporting that a deal may be close. Sanspo does not believe there is anything to keep the two sides from agreeing to a deal.
