The Yokohama BayStars don't look like they're going to do much winning this season. The team can, however, be associated with at least one historic victory at the conclusion of the season.

It was reported last week that the BayStars want to put Cuban import Yulieski Gourriel up for consideration for the Central League Rookie of the Year Award, which will be given out after the season.

It's still early, but the infielder is shaping up to be a viable candidate.
