by on Feb.25, 2015 @ 11:15 pm, under NPB

The Hanshin Tigers are looking for insurance in case one of their four foreign players gets hurt during the season and may be closing in on an agreement with thirty-year-old pitcher Mario Santiago.

"Things are moving in a positive direction. He could come [to Japan] in mid-March. He can start and relieve. He knows about the lack of foreign player slots. He will be waiting at Ni-gun for a shot [at the active roster]," said general manager Katsuhiro Nakamura.
