Naoyuki Shimizu lands in Yokohama for two players

The deal is now official.

The Yokohama Bay Stars send 27-year-old Takumi Nasuno (P) and 25-year-old Toshio Saito (C) to the Chiba Lotte Marines for 33-year-old Naoyuki Shimizu (P).

Shimizu will be in the second year of a 2-year deal next season.

On paper, this seems like a good deal for either side.  The Bay Stars get a live arm they can stick in the rotation behind Daisuke Miura, Stephen Randolph, and Hayato Terahara.  And the Marines get a little younger with a left-handed arm and another catcher to play around with.

Could all of this be another indication that Tasuku Hashimoto is on his way to Yokohama as well?
