Orlando Roman Signs, With Yakult?

by Patrick Newman (Dec 2, 2011)

The other day, Scot Drucker tweeted that Orlando Roman signed with a Japanese team. On the same day, Daily Sports reported that Yakult was looking into signing Roman, so, putting two and two together… I’ll surmise that Roman has signed with Yakult.

I’ll admit that I had never heard of Roman prior to Drucker’s tweet, but his b-ref page indicates that he’s a hard working minor league veteran, a 31st-round draft pick who reached 3A at age 27, and has played in Mexico and in Taiwan with the Brother Elephants in recent years. It’s always nice to see  hard work pay off for this type of player, and I hope he does well in Japan.
