Hiroyuki Kobayashi told reporters earlier today that he still had no leads and was prepared to wait until the new year for a deal.  Among the that were apparently mentioned:

  • While he would prefer a multi-year deal, he also wouldn't mind a 1-year deal either.
  • He doesn't really have a preference when it comes to teams.
  • He doesn't have a preference for how he wants to be used and wouldn't mind pitching out of the bullpen.
  • His family will be staying back in Japan.
  • It does seem as though he does have an minimum when it comes to salary.
