Roel Santos to Play for Marines

Cuban outfielder Roel Santos has signed a contract to play for the Chibba Lotte Marines in the NPB. The contract according to YakyuDB is estimated at $200,000. He will begin the season once he gets a work visa.

Santos does not have any power. He could hit for average which would allow him to use his speed to steal bases. His defense fits the mold of a centerfielder. The Marines currently have the worst record in the NPB. They have not been getting a lot of production from their foreign bats Matt Duffy (.213) and Jimmy Paredes (.174).
