Sponichi is reporting that the Boston Red Sox may have placed the winning bid on Hiroyuki Nakajima.   They also mention the New York Mets as being a team that may have submitted a bid.


Five or six teams, including the Arizona Diamonbacks, LA Angels, and Pittsburgh Pirates, could be interested in Takashi Saito.


Sponichi reports that the Arizona Diamondbacks are pushing fairly strong to sign Hiroki Kuroda and could be preparing a multi-year deal worth around US$12M a year.  An unnamed MLB source is also quoted as saying that the Diamondbacks may invite Kuroda out to Arizona, with his family, to alleviate any concerns he might have about the location/facilities.

The Colorado Rockies, Boston Red Sox, and Chicago Cubs are amongst the teams that are said to be interested in Kuroda.


Ichiro Suzuki took 41 swings during BP at Hotto Motto Field on Tuesday and hit two over the fence.
