Michihiro Ogasawara earns domestic / international FA option

by on Aug.17, 2010 @ 8:55 pm, under NPB

36-year-old Michihiro Ogasawara earned his domestic / international FA options today.  This marks the second time he has earned the option -- the first time around he left the Nippon Ham Fighters for the Yomiuri Giants after the 2006 season and signed a 4-year deal (which actually ends at the end of this season).

32-year-old Takahiro Suzuki earned his domestic FA option today.

    I would love to see Ogasawara come to MLB next year and DH for some team. Given his age, do you think there would be any interest? Has he ever hinted at his future plans?

      I think he’d be an interesting option for the MLB as well. I don’t ever really remember him talking about wanting to head to the US though. I’m also not sure if he’d want to DH full time. I’m guessing his family will play a role in the decision as well. If I’m not mistaken, one of his reasons for signing with the Giants was so that he could be closer to his family.
