The Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks have signed 26-year-old Venezuelan pitcher Darwinzon Hernandez, a former Boston Red Sox player known for his strong fastball, to enhance their relief pitching. Hernandez, who also played for Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic, was introduced on August 8 and expressed his determination to contribute to the team’s success. The acquisition is seen as crucial for the Hawks, who are looking to bolster their left-handed relief options after Livan Moinelo’s elbow surgery. Hernandez will wear number 61 and start training in Chikugo City. Source: NHK
