NPB: José Adolis García Signs Contract with Yomiuri Giants

Jose Adolis Garcia becomes the second Cuban player to sign a contract to play for the Yomiuri Giants. Relief pitcher Hector Mendoza is the first. Mendoza has yet to pitch for the major league team, but he has made 10 appearances for the Giants minor league equivalent, picking up two saves with a 1.64 ERA. The Giants would like to see him improve his control before they promote him as he has walked six hitters in just 11 innings.

NPB: José Adolis García al Yomiuri Giants

Este miércoles en tarde en el estadio Latinoamericano de La Habana, el elenco Yomiuri Giants de la Liga Japonesa de Béisbol, alcanzó un acuerdo con el jardinero avileño de 23 años José Adolis García, que mandaría al joven prospecto cubano al remoto país asiático.

El pasado febrero José Adolis no había aceptado una oferta inicial del conjunto japonés, pero los asiáticos se mantuvieron en las negociaciones para finalmente adquirir al jugador.
