Offseason Changes: Orix Buffaloes

by Patrick Newman (Feb 3, 2009)

Coming: Ryan Vogelsong, Jon Leicester, Jose Fernandez, Naoyuki Ohmura, Fumikazu Takanami, Kento Kanazawa

Going: Tom Davey, Ramon Ortiz, John Koronka, Eric Jung, Arihito Muramatsu, Kazuhiro Kiyohara (retirement)

Staying: Tuffy Rhodes, Alex Cabrera, Greg LaRocca

Trending: marginally upward

Synopsis: Orix added two foreign players with NPB experience in Vogelsong and Fernandez, and got the better of the Ohmura - Muramatsu trade with SoftBank. On the downside, they didn't add anyone significant to the pitching staff. Word is they're not done adding to their foreign roster.
