Hanshin Agrees to Terms with Kevin Mench
Looks like the Hanshin Tigers have agreed on a contract former Blue Jay Kevin Mench. Sanspo is reporting that it’s a one-year, $2m deal, which looks good for Hanshin with the yen strong against the dollar. The contract isn’t final, but it’s looking good at this point.
Mench should take over rightfield from the disappointing Lew Ford and bat fifth or sixth for the Tigers.
