It isn't. He is "gaijin" -- a foreign born player hired to be a ballplayer in Japan. He's been spectacular and at his age he wouldn't be expensive to bring back to the USA.

Re:


I think that the most important things for a middle reliever are:

-be relatively unknown to your division rivals;
-good control;
-keep the ball down to RH batters;
-keep the ball up and inside to LH batters (down is bad for a RHP facing a Lefty);

The Braves traded for and then DFA'd Adrian [sign in to see URL] Alderson traded for the so-far unimpressive 1B in the 2005 to 2006 off [sign in to see URL] went on to become a superstar for the [sign in to see URL]'s the chances that Adrian is our 1B in 2018?

Re:


It would have to be a minimum wage deal with the Braves on the hook for the rest of it. He's a lefty and has back issues, so he could be a mirror image of David Wright as the veteran unable to man his corner position.
