Kei Igawa worked out in Hitachinaka, Ibaraki today (running, long distance throwing).  Igawa is in the final year of a 5-year deal with the New York Yankees and said to reporters, "I haven't done a thing over the last 4 years.  I need to do make something happen this year. ... I need to do well this year.  I consider this an important year that will determine where I am next year. ... I want to have more fun in the US.  I want to make the starting rotation for an MLB team."

Igawa also got his green card at the end of last year.
