Sponichi: Kenshin Kawakami's agent is saying that up to 10 teams have contacted him about the free agent. No word on which 10 teams.
Sanspo: The Yomiuri Giants have released Ken Kadokura. Kadokura signed on with the Giants 2 years ago with hopes of helping the pitching staff, but instead managed to only win 1 game over 23 appearances. The Giants were hoping to retain his services in 2009, but couldn't necessarily guarantee him a spot on the ichi-gun roster.
