Junichi Tazawa flew back to the US on Thursday. Tazawa told reporters that he's currently working on building up his body so that he'll have an easier time pitching every 5th day.
So Taguchi returned to Japan on Thursday. It seems the Buffaloes are the only team he has received an offer from. Still, Taguchi didn't appear to be completely convinced that his playing days in the Majors was over, saying that he still wasn't sure how things would turn out.
Taguchi plans on beginning his training on the 8th at his alma mater, Kwansei Gakuin University.
