John Wasdin Headed Back to Japan
Found on Hochi Sports via Yahoo: former Yomiuri Giant John Wasdin is on his way back to Japan, this time on a one-year deal with the Seibu Lions. Wasdin was pretty mediocre for the Giants back 2002, though I remember him being much worse than his numbers indicate. Either way, he wasn’t given much of a chance to prove himself with a Giants team that went on to win the 2002 Japan Series.
Seibu team president Maeda says that Wasdin has improved on his breaking pitches and control, and that they expect him to start in 2009.
