Channeling mlbtraderumors for the second straight day...
- Looks like Takashi Saito is non-tender candidate. He was admittedly awful in his playoff appearance, but given how great he's been the last few years I think he deserves another shot.
- Dan Evans has spoken to over 10 teams about Kenshin Kawakami.
- The Giants are reportedly in on Tadahito Iguchi.
- Kei Igawa visited Hanshin's office, fueling speculation that he might be headed back to the Tigers. Igawa insists that he's focused on succeeding in America. Igawa is eligible for the rule 5 draft this year... I'll have more on him in a couple days.
- Texas AAA reliever Yukinaga Maeda announced his retirement last week.
