[7/27/2014] Rakuten Eagles to sign twenty-eight-year-old infielder Nick Evans

by on Jul.27, 2014 @ 1:56 pm, under NPB

The Rakuten Eagles are either in the process of finalizing, or have already finalized, a deal with twenty-eight-year-old infielder Nick Evans.  Reports out of the US indicate that a deal is done and in place.  The Eagles have yet to make an official announcement.

The Eagles started looking into Evans when they found out Zach Lutz suffered a fracture in his right thumb and might require about six weeks for a full recovery.

Rakuten official Hiroshi Abei on negotiations: "Including necessary paperwork, we're at the medical examination stage so there's little I can say. ... We hope he can stay healthy.  Discussions have gone well."
