Andy MacPhail, Orioles' president of baseball operations, is quoted at Sponichi as saying the team was interested in both Ryota Igarashi and Hisanori Takahashi.

"Right-handed, left-handed, we're always looking to sign [new] pitchers.  Last year we signed Uehara.  Our [scouting] information on Japanese [players] has improved.  We would like to sit down and talk to them," said MacPhail.
