Rays Might Go to Japan, Again


Your next Rays closer?
Kazuo Fukumori - RHP - 31-year-old closer finished with ERAs of 3.57, 2.17 and 4.75 the last three years. 124/68 K/BB ratio in 157 IP over the three seasons. Missed time in 2007 with elbow issues. Japan Baseball Daily says the Rays are interested. Poor command of stuff that rates little better than average would seem to put him in worse position to succeed in the majors than some other Japanese relievers.

Per Rotoworld via Japan Baseball Daily, according to his name he's not a fan of Shinji Mori -- yes I had to make that lame joke -- he'd also give the Rays two players going by the nickname "Kaz".
