The Seibu Lions of NPB announced yesterday that they have agreed to contracts with Cory Spangenberg and Sean Nolin. The salary of Spangenberg is estimated at 80 million yen and that of Nolin is about 60 million yen.
Spangenberg was the San Diego Padres’ first-round draft pick in 2011 and now a 28-year-old infielder. After Playing for the Padres for four seasons, he played with the Milwaukee Brewers in 2019. In his 6-year major career, he has recorded a .256 BA with 25 homers and 119 RBIs. The outfielder can play as an infielder as well.
Nolin is a 29-year-old, light-handed pitcher. He played for the Toronto Blue Jays from 2013 to 2014, the Oakland Athletics in 2015, and minor league from 2016 to 2019. He went 1-3 with a 6.89 ERA in his MLB career.
Hisanobu Watanabe, general manager of the club said, “Spangenberg was the odds-on favorite. His playing style is aggressive and the balance of his running, fielding and hitting is really good. He can hit to a wide-range direction and will be able to adapt to Japanese baseball. “ About Nolin, “his straight pitch is powerful. He has a variety of breaking balls. I expect as a starter,” Watanabe said.
