According to a report by Nikkan Sports, odds are increasing that Randy Messenger will not be playing in Japan next season.  A number of MLB teams, including the Minnesota Twins, San Diego Padres, and Seattle Mariners, are said to have an interest in the thirty-two-year-old pitcher.

The Hanshin Tigers would like to sign Messenger to an extension, but with rumors that he might command upwards of one billion yen (about ten million US dollars) over three years in the Majors, he could end up being priced out of their range.
