2007-8 Free Agents Interested in MLB

Discussion in the Rumor Mill forum
2007-8 Free Agents Interested in MLB
As most of you know this is the actual list of free agents for 2007-8 off season. Those of you who still think that Uehara is a free agent, please read the list. And any source that says that Uehara is a free agent doesn't know what they're talking about. Ignore them.

The list that everyone wants is that of free agents interested in moving to the MLB. Well, today's Nikkan Sports (paper version) has The List of players who have expressed such interest and are free agents.

Is this the definitive list? No. It's speculation on the part of the Nikkan Sports writers. Might others also be interested? Yes. Might some on this list decide to stay with their team? Yes.

Now, the list:

P Maeda Yukinaga

OF Fukudome Kosuke

P Shimoyanagi Tsuyoshi

P Kuroda Hiroki

P Yabuta Yasuhiko
P Kobayashi Masahide

P Fukumori Kazuo

Free agents have 7 business days starting yesterday (November 2) to declare free agency if they wish. That means that the final list of players who actually declare will be published after November 12. I will post something about free agents again when that list comes out. Until then, enjoy your speculations.

According to this post on, Hiroki Kuroda is expected to file for free agency on Monday.

There is an article that goes along with it, but it is in Japanese, so I can't really read it. This post also has updates on a few others.

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.
