Braves Interested in Kawagoe

by Patrick Newman (Nov 13, 2009)

Daily Sports has a report saying that the Braves have some interest in signing Hidetaka Kawagoe, who was release by the Orix Buffaloes at the end of the season. Kawagoe, 36, moved from the rotation to the bullpen during the 2009 season, and profiles better as a reliever regardless of which league he next plays in. The Chiba Lotte Marines have also been kicking the tires on Kawagoe, and appear to be his most likely destination if he stays in Japan.

JapaneseBaseball.com has his career numbers through 2008, and you can get a sense of what he throws on NPB Tracker Data.
