Igarashi Qualifies for Free Agency

by Patrick Newman (Jun 15, 2009)

Sanspo reports that Yakult fireballer Ryota Igarashi has now officially met the service time requirements for international free agency. Cue standard remarks from Igarashi: "Right now I'm only thinking about staying in shape and winning. I want to think it (free agency) over carefully in the offseason"... and from Yakult's front office: "it's his decision so we don't know what will happen, but he is one person that is needed on our team".

In any event, expect Igarashi to get a raise from the 8.4m yen ($840k) he's making this year.
