The Los Angeles Dodgers apparently have some interest in Hisanori Takahashi. They have apparently offered Takahashi a minor league contract with an invite to Spring Training to make the MLB roster.
Takahashi has received minor league offers from about 10 teams so far. That includes the San Diego Padres, Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, San Francisco Giants, and Dodgers.
Ryota Igarashi and Akinori Iwamura worked out together at Jingu Stadium on Friday. Igarashi threw 30 BP pitches (including the curve by request) to Iwamura.
For those wondering, Iwamura managed to hit 2 out.
Koji Uehara flew out of Japan on Friday in order to get to Florida a little early.
