Tsutsugo heading back to Japan?

The Rays announced Tuesday that they’ve designated struggling first baseman/outfielder Yoshitomo Tsutsugo for assignment. Kazuaki Mihara, a representative Yoshitomo’s former team Yokohama Dena Baystars, released a comment on the 12th. “I don’t know what kind of decision Tsutsugo will make, so I can’t say conclusive things, but when I sent him out, I told him, “I want him to come back to Baystars when it comes to playing in Japan,” and that feeling has not changed even now. If Tsutsugo chooses to play in the Japanese baseball world, I would like to communicate firmly.” Yoshitomo is recording only .167 with no HR through his 87 plate appearances this season.
