Akinori Iwamura signed a management contract with AK Global Agent in Japan (profile page at AK).


Kazuo Matsui told reporters yesterday that he may be leaning more towards making a return to the NPB next season.  Nikkan Sports mentions the Yokohama Bay Stars, Orix Buffaloes, and Yomiuri Giants as three teams that might be interested in his services.

"I wonder which it will be.  It's a tough question," said Matsui.  "I think I need to take both [leagues] into consideration. ... But I can't help but feel that I'm focusing a little more on Japan right now."
