It appears Hisashi Iwakuma has pretty given up on the Oakland A's and has decided that he'll be returning to the Rakuten Eagles next season.  At least that's according to a report that was filed by Sponichi (and Sanspo is carrying the same thing) at 12:04pm JST.

And according to an unnamed baseball source mentioned in the report, Iwakuma is planning on holding a press conference on the 8th to announce his decision.

Also included in the report is the following comment by A's GM Billy Beane:

We are in contact with Iwakuma's [agent].  The only thing I can say right now is to wait for the deadline.
