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.
