[11/24/2013] Chunichi Dragons looking into Nelson Payano

According to Nikkan Sports, the Chunichi Dragons are looking into left-handed pitcher Nelson Payano (31).  Payano played for Chunichi in 2009 under Hiromitsu Ochiai.  He left after the season for a number of reasons, including money -- the Dragons offered him US$200,000 but he wanted, at the very least, US$250,000 -- and a dislike for long practice hours.

Payano could end up being a replacement for Warner Madrigal (the Dragons have decided not to re-sign him).

Hanshin Tigers interested in Chang-Yong Lim and Nelson Payano

The Hanshin Tigers are apparently showing interest in both Chang-Yong Lim and Nelson Payano and have begun looking into both players.

The Tigers are looking for a setup man for Kyuji Fujikawa, similar to the roles that Jeff Williams and Scott Atchison filled when they were with the team.

Lim is currently playing for the Yakult Swallows and becomes a free agent after the current season.

Payano was back in the US this year and spent a season with the Houston Astros' double-A team, the Corpus Christi Hooks.  Payno pitched in 26 games and went 1-1 with an ERA of 5.83 (29.1 IP, 31 H, 19 R, 19 ER, 2 HR, 23 BB, 36 SO).
