According to Nikkan Sports, the Yomiuri Giants have more or less decided not to pursue an extension with Marc Kroon. Kroon was hoping to stay with the club, but the Giants apparently don't feel confident enough in Kroon's ability to close out games.
If Kroon doesn't mind taking on another position other than closer, the Giants might be willing to bring him back next season.
