12/14/2011: Daisuke Matsuzaka, Takashi Saito, Hideki Matsui

by on Dec.15, 2011 @ 12:22 am, under MLB

Daisuke Matsuzaka returned to Japan on Tuesday.   He will be staying in Japan for about two weeks before returning to Fort Myers, Florida in early January to continue his training; he has also received a list of things to do (like training exercises) while in Japan from the Boston Red Sox.

Matsuzaka is scheduled to participate in a baseball clinic with Shuichi Murata in Iwate on 12/17.


Nikkan Sports is reporting that Takashi Saito selected the Arizona Diamondbacks (one-year, US$1.8M) from eight possible suitors that included the New York Yankees, LA Angels, and LA Dodgers.


There is a good chance Hideki Matsui won't sign until after December.


Former Yomiuri Giant, Jonathan Albaladejo, signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

      Sorry, that really should have read Takashi Saito, not Hideki Okajima. I must have been thinking about him when I typed out the sentence. FIXED.
