Yuniesky Betancourt To Play In Japan In 2014

Posted By Matt Stein On January 28, 2014 @ 9:15 PM In MLB,News and Rumors | No Comments

Yuniesky Betancourt was said to be drawing interest last week from multiple major league teams, but free agents follow the money and the 31-year-old infielder is headed to Japan on a one-year guaranteed contract with the Orix Buffaloes of NPB.

Betancourt likely would have had to settle for a non-guaranteed minor league deal had he remained in North America, and this way he recieves more money and a much better chance for regular playing time.
