An Akinori Iwamura Update | The Process Report

An Akinori Iwamura Update

When we last discussed Akinori Iwamura, he was on his way back to Japan. Nick Cafardo provided an update on Iwamura today, and it’s not so joyful:

Akinori Iwamura, former Rays 2B — He was recently released by the Rakuten Eagles in Japan after hitting .169 in 24 games. He was also asked to lose weight and did not do so.

I certainly don’t know if this is the end of the line for Iwamura, but conditioning problems and poor performances don’t tend to lead to happy places. Oh well, we’ll always have the tag at second, Aki.
