Does anyone have news about Yokohama closer Takashi Saitoh? He drew interest from some MLB teams (LA Dodgers, Atlanta, and I think San Diego) but I haven't heard anything about him in the last few weeks. I hope to have news. Thanks

Good timing. Just today (Dec. 29) Nikkan Sports has a short article updating the status on Saitoh.

Acording to the article, Saitoh it planning on making his decision by the middle of January on whether to stay with Yokohama or head to the Majors. He doesn't appear interested in changing to another team domesticly.

So far, Yokohama has offered Saitoh a three year, 7.5-oku (750,000,000) yen deal. The article only mentions that two MLB teams have made offers, but doesn't give any details of them.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
