Rangers Close In On Kazuo Fukumori

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

The Rangers are close to signing Japanese reliever Kazuo Fukumori, a 31-year-old right-handed reliever. In 2007, he was 4-2 with a 4.75 ERA in just 36 innings, but in 2006, he had a 2.17 ERA and 21 saves in 58 innings, so he will probably be their setup man.
