An Offer for Igarashi

by Patrick Newman (Dec 10, 2009)

Sponichi has a brief report saying that Ryota Igarashi has received his first MLB offer - a one-year deal from an unnamed team. In the words of the source Sponichi cites: "it was a one-year, major league contract. His elbow (which he had surgery on in 2006) is not a problem, and they see him as someone who could perform in a middle relief role."

The Orioles, Pirates, Giants and Rangers have shown interest in Igarashi, but there's no indication that one of these teams made the offer.
