Yoshinori Tateyama wants to play in the Majors?

by on Oct.03, 2010 @ 3:34 pm, under NPB

It appears Yoshinori Tateyama (HAM) may be thinking about exercising his international FA option to see if there are any clubs that are interested in his services other than the Nippon Ham Fighters.  While Tateyama could change teams domestically, it seems Tateyama is more interested in testing the MLB FA waters.

Tateyama is scheduled to meet with the Fighters at some point soon in order to discuss what he'd like to do.  Tateyama could have exercised in international FA option last year, but opted to stick with the Fighters for another season because of his love for the team.
