Hanshin Tigers Acquire Chris Resop

by Patrick Newman (Jul 9, 2008)

Just picked up this thread from JapaneseBaseball.com that says that Hanshin has purchased the contract of reliever Chris Resop from the Braves. Interestingly, shortly before reading that thread, I saw this re-run of an article on Sanspo, which said that Hanshin had a scout in the US looking for relief help for when Bullpen aces Kyuji Fujikawa and Tomoyuki Kubota will be away for the Olympics.

I've never seen Resop pitch, but he's appeared in parts of four MLB seasons. He might be kind of a AAAA guy since he's put up respectable numbers in minors but hasn't found sustained MLB success yet. Check out his full stats here. Resop is still only 25, so there's room for him to develop as well.
