Hanshin Tigers want Kanemoto to return in 2011

Hanshin Tigers owner Nobuo Minami told reporters on Sunday that he would like Tomoaki Kanemoto to return to the team next season.  He also said that the club had yet to begin negotiations with Kanemoto.

Incidentally, Kanemoto did not make it into last night's game (not as a member of the starting line-up and not as a pinch-hitter).  Since it was a playoff game, it doesn't officially go into the books as missing a game, but in terms of missing games in general, the last time Kanemoto didn't play in any portion of a game was back on 7/7/1998 when he was a member of the Hiroshima Carp.
