Thames is a New Start in Japan, Joining Yomiuri
Eric Thames, who played in the Major League through the KBO League, will build a nest in the Nippon Professional Baseball 파워볼사이트
Japanese media, including Sports Hochi, reported on the 30th that Thames has agreed to join Yomiuri. An official announcement at the team level is expected soon. Yomiuri is also looking to recruit Justin Smok, a big shot who hit 196 home runs in the Major League. Recently, rival team Hanshin has fired up its desire to win this year by recruiting foreign players representing the KBO league, including Raul Alcantara and Mel Rojas Jr., and Yomiuri, who missed the Japanese Series title due to Softbank for the second consecutive year, also seems to be facing each other.
Thames agreed with Yomiuri on the terms of receiving a one-year contract period and $1.2 million annual salary, and the 2022 contract is known to have an option. Thames, who made a U-turn to the Major League after his skills were in full bloom at the NC Dinos, will take on a new challenge in Japan. He is expected to be used as a left fielder in Yomiuri.
He is aiming to strengthen his central batting lineup by recruiting a big foreign hitter who suffered a painful defeat in the Japanese Series due to sluggish foreign hitters. Although he lost to Hanshin in the match against Rojas, he expressed his strong will to strengthen his batting lineup and win the Japanese Series with Thames and Smoke.
