Orix Adds Fernandez
The Orix Buffaloes have added former Rakuten infielder Jose Fernandez. He was signed to a one year deal worth 100 million yen.

Fernandez batted .301/.368/.475 with 18 HRs and 99 RBI for Rakuten. He should be a solid addition to the Orix lineup.

If Fernandez can put up numbers comparably to what he did last season with Rakuten, then this will have been a steal for Orix. I like the move regardless, but still, I think it makes Orix that much better.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
