There are always plenty of roster moves towards the end of July, however, they often revolve around trades and not players who simply decide to leave.

According to a tweet by Jon Morosi, a national baseball writer for Foxsports.com, Yhency Brazoban is considering leaving the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Brazoban appeared in six games with the D-backs this season and allowed four earned runs in six innings pitched. He was outrighted July 20th.

Although he has struggled throughout his career and has a career ERA over 4.50, there have been no specific reasons given as to why the pitcher is considering playing in Japan.
