D'Backs Sell Ryal To Yomiuri Giants

The D'Backs announced that they sold Rusty Ryal to the Yomiuri Giants of the NPB. It appeared earlier in the month that the utility player would end up in Japan and the D'Backs released him last week.

Ryal hit .261/.308/.348 in 222 plate appearances last year, his second season in the majors. He has struggled to hit at the major league level, but proven his versatility, playing left field, first, second and third. In parts of five minor league seasons, the 27-year-old has a .287/.346/.475 line. Ryal’s father, Mark, spent two seasons with the Chunichi Dragons, according to the D’Backs press release.
