CBS Sports

Freddy Galvis, an infielder with more than nine years of big-league service time, is reportedly nearing an agreement with the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks of Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball league, according to Yahoo! Japan. 

Galvis, who celebrated his 32nd birthday November 14, split last season with the Baltimore Orioles and the Philadelphia Phillies. In 104 games, he batted .242/.302/.407 (91 OPS+) with 14 home runs. His performance was worth an estimated 1.2 Wins Above Replacement, per Baseball Reference's calculations.

Galvis has appeared in more than 1,100 big-league games over the course of 10 big-league seasons.
