RUMOR: Igarashi to test MLB FA Market in 2010?

Ryota Igarashi could exercise is international FA option during the upcoming off-season in order to test the MLB waters.  Igarashi is said to be compiling a list of possible agents (Alan Nero and Arn Tellem appear to be two options) to help him with his attempt to land an MLB deal.

Igarashi earned his international FA option earlier this year on June 15th.

The Swallows wanted to sign Igarashi to a multi-year deal last December but Igarashi declined and opted for a 1-year deal instead in order to keep his options open for the upcoming off-season.
