Nyjer Morgan is heading to Japan
Nyjer Morgan has signed with the Yokohama DeNA BayStars, according to the Associated Press (via ESPN.com). Morgan, a Turner Gary Sports client, will earn $1.6MM to play for the BayStars in Japan's Central League.
Morgan played for the Brewers in 2012, posting a .239/.302/.308 batting line in 322 plate appearances. The 32-year-old played all three outfield positions and stole 12 bases in 17 attempts. His best season at the big league level might have been 2011, when he hit .304/.357/.421 for a Brewers team that won the NL Central.Trade Bucket: Hidden Content

I think his alter ego is still playing for the Brewers next year. It will probably put up better numbers than he ever did.

He was actually pretty good in 2011, hitting .304 for us. But I couldn't stand the mouth that came with the player. Carlos Gomez is a much, much better center fielder for us, and he finally started realizing some of his massive potential last season. .260, 72 runs, 19 HR, 51 RBI and 37 stolen bases in only 415 AB's....plus outstanding defense. I'm excited to see what he does next year.

Knowing Japan, if Morgan learns Japanese, Tony Plush could have his own talk or variety show by the end of the season.

Gomez and Schafer will make a pretty good tandem in center. I'm really looking forward to see what Logan can do. I think he's going to surprise a lot of people. Not a lot of power, but the kid can hit.
