Hideki Okajima's agent, Joe Rosen, said that he'll accept offers from any club in the Majors and the NPB.


Kenshin Kawakami's agent, Dan Evans, told reporters that his client's goal was to play in the Majors next season.  The Pirates are rumored to be interested in Kawakami (trade).


Koji Uehara doesn't seem to mind signing a 1-year deal and that his #1 desire was simply to play in the Majors.


According to Fox Sports, the Seattle Mariners apparently have some interest in Hideki Matsui. (via Nikkan Sports) ... Arn Tellem, Matsui's agent, says that a number of teams have contacted him about his client and that there was still a ways to go before anything could be decided.  He also added that Matsui wants to play on a regular basis and wants to play for a team that's capable of winning.

Shigeo Nagashima doesn't see Matsui returning to Japan and said he expected Matsui to have a better idea of where in the US he was going play next season before the end of the year.
