The Chunichi Dragons are interested in thirty-three-year-old pitcher Rafael Perez. The Dragons like Perez because he has experience as a starter and a reliever. They also like that he is a left-handed pitcher. According to a report by Nikkan Sports, Perez is scheduled to arrive in Japan in a day or two. An announcement and press conference could be made and held fairly quickly.
The Dragons are still said to be interested in Kagawa's Drew Naylor as well. It is possible they could sign both pitchers to bolster their pitching staff.
