Ryota Igarashi is planning on flying over to the US some time in the beginning of December and will likely stay in Arizona to work out at Athletes' Performance.

Said Igarashi, "My family will come with me.  I also think learning English in the US will help me pick it up quicker.  There's also a chance that I might stay in the States until I sign with a team."

Igarashi also hopes to begin throwing with an MLB regulation ball before the end of the year.

"I thought it might be best to work out in the US when I started thinking about the differences in the baseball and mounds," added Igarashi.

The Rangers were mentioned as a team that could be interested in Igarashi.
