Andy Phillips signs in Japan again

According to various sources, Andy Phillips has agreed to terms with the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles. The team, based in Sendai, Japan, is the one that Marty Brown, manager of the Hiroshima Carp last year, is now managing. Also on this team are former Yankees Todd Linden and Darrell Rasner.

Andy will reportedly make 50 million yen (about $500,000), and wear #5.

Last year, he got $400,000 for half a season, so this appears to be a pay cut. Aaron Guiel is getting almost twice as much with the Tokyo Yakult Swallows. I thought Andy had hit well last year, but I guess numbers that look good here might not over there.

Anyway, best of luck to Andy with his new team.
