Right-hander Guillermo Moscoso has agreed to sign with Nippon Professional Baseball's Yokohama Bay Stars, according to a report from Nikkan Sports. Moscoso is a client of Praver/Shapiro.
The 30-year-old posted a 5.10 ERA in 30 innings with a 31-to-21 K/BB ratio for the Giants last season. Moscoso has a 4.28 ERA in 222 2/3 Major League innings, but he's struggled since his 2011 season with the A's in which he posted a 3.38 ERA in 128 frames.
Moscoso began the 2013 season in the Cubs organization but was traded to the Giants for cash in July. San Francisco designated Moscoso for assignment in November, after which he cleared waivers and elected free agency.
In before “did they win the posting fee?” jokes.
A lot of people going over there this off season
Nice. Now he can be mediocre on an international level.
Another of the many former Cubs players going to the NPB.
