A couple of player personnel notes to pass along...
Sanspo via Yahoo! Japan is saying that the Chiba Lotte Marines have added Dodgers lefty Eric Stults to their shopping list.
Based on the one game I saw Stults pitch, a dominant performance
against the Giants, I thought he was a pretty good prospect. I didn't
realize he was 29.
According the same article, the Marines are nearly done with a deal for Blue Jays lefty Bill Murphy, who tried out for the team along with Bryan Corey and a couple others last month. Lotte sees Murphy as a middle reliever.
