It looks like Thomas agreed to a Minor League contract [MLB.com] with the Detroit Tigers.

Speaking of Atchison, he just signed with the Red Sox. Funny that they just got rid of Saitoh but ended up with someone else connected with Japan.

Yes that is correct. Tigers are still interested in Messinger though.
About

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.
