The Rakuten Eagles said Wednesday they have agreed to terms with
former Colorado Rockies reliever Ryan Speier.

The 31-year-old right-hander, who was attending a tryout at the
team's training camp in Okinawa Prefecture, will make 34 million yen
this year, including a signing bonus.

Speier has a 7-3 career record with a 3.99 ERA in 90 games, all
in relief, over four major league seasons.

Last year, he went 3-4 with a 3.36 ERA in 56 relief appearances
for Southern Maryland of the independent Atlantic League.
