Sponichi is reporting that the Philadelphia Phillies are showing interest in Ryota Igarashi.  According to the article, the Phillies are on the market for a relief pitcher in the US$2-3M range and Igarashi could fit that bill.


41-year-old Shingo Takatsu would like to continue pitching next season, unfortunately it doesn't appear as though there are any teams interested in his services.

Takatsu appeared in 14 games with the Fresno Grizzlies in 2009 and ended the sesaon with a 6.87 ERA (14 ER, 18.1 IP, 25 H, 16 K).
