Hanshin Looking For a Bat After All

by Patrick Newman (May 18, 2009)

Despite giving struggling import Kevin Mench a vote of confidence last month, importing another bat is apparently still on the table for Hanshin. Says owner Shinya Sakai: "I think Mench has gotten better so he's been called up. I haven't gotten a request to acquire someone from (manager Akinobu) Mayumi, but money is not a problem".

The linked report suggests that Hanshin is looking at retreads Tyrone Woods, Craig Brazell, and Julio Zuleta. Woods seems like the best choice among that group, though I suspect they'll keep looking.
