The Yomiuri Giants are apparently interested in Shuichi Murata and have begun looking into him as a possible option at third base.

The Giants tried a number of players at third base this year, including Rusty Ryal, Yoshiyuki Kamei, Shigeyuki Furuki, and Takayuki Terauchi, but none managed to really stick.

The Giants are also interested in a couple of KBO pitchers: Hanwha Giant 24-year-old LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu and 30-year-old Doosan Bear Dustin Nippert.

Softbank Hawks interested in 30-year-old Dustin Nippert

There were reports that the Hanshin Tigers were interested in RHP Dustin Nippert back in SeptemberSports Hochi now reports that the Softbank Hawks are interested in the 30-year-old (they sent scouts to check him out in Korea back in September), especially since there are no guarantees that Tsuyoshi Wada (international FA) and Toshiya Sugiuchi (domestic FA) will return next season.

The Hawks could also be thinking about offering D.J. Houlton a multi-year deal.

Hanshin Tigers looking into 30-year-old Dustin Nippert

The Hanshin Tigers are currently looking into 30-year-old pitcher Dustin Nippert as a possible back-up plan should Jason Standridge or Randy Messenger decide to return to the Majors.

The Tigers like Nippert because he "has a fastball that sits around 146-148km/h.  He's also tall and throws at an angle without his right shoulder flying open.  He's got a cutter, curve, and a two-seamer he can throw on the inside corner."
