...The Fighters announced that Yoshihiro Sato has retired.
...Kimiyasu Kudo may have a potential suitor in the Seibu Lions. But other than that, it doesn't appear as though there's much of any interest in the 46-year-old right-hander.
Kudo started his career with Seibu and could be returning to the team after a 5-year stint with Daiei (1995-1999), a 7-year stint with Yomiuri (2000-2006), and a 3-year stint with Yokohama (2007-2009).
