Morgan reportedly agrees on deal to play in Japan

Outfielder Nyjer Morgan will reportedly play in the Far East this season. Whether his alter ego, Tony Plush, will join him remains to be seen.

According to The Associated Press, the former Brewers outfielder has agreed with the Yokohama DeNA BayStars of Japan's Central League on a one-year deal that will pay him $1.6 million.

Morgan, who often refers to himself as Plush and uses the Twitter account @TheRealTPlush, batted .239 in 122 games for Milwaukee last season. He hit .304 for the club in 2011. The 32-year-old has spent six Major League seasons with the Pirates, Nationals and Brewers, amassing 117 stolen bases and a career average of .280.
