Orix Buffaloes to forego Cabrera, Softbank interested?

The Orix Buffaloes appear to be on the verge of stepping away from 38-year-old Alex Cabrera due to a breakdown in contract negotiations.  The Buffaloes are said to have a 1-year deal worth 230M yen (down 50M yen) on the table, but Cabrera is apparently looking for a multi-year deal.

The Buffaloes aren't expected to increase their offer as their parent company is pushing cost reduction measures.  If Cabrera ends up walking away from the team, the Softbank Hawks may be a team interested in his services.
