Dailiy Sports is reporting that former Hanshin Tiger Kodai Sakurai (28) may be close to signing a deal with the Kagawa Olive Guyners (Shikoku Island League plus).

Kodai attended NPB tryouts last year but did not receive any offers.  Not wanting to give up on his career (or his wish to play in the NPB again), he turned to Kagawa manager Shinji Nishida for assistance (the two are PL Gakuen graduates).
