Matt Murton posted the following update at his official website today:

Hello everyone.

The Hanshin organization officially informed me the other day that they were not going to offer me a contract for the 2016 season.

I am grateful to the cheering fans and the people that supported my family in Kobe over the last six years.

I probably never would have been able to accomplish all that I did during those six years without everyone's support.

I am sad to have to leave, but at the same time, I am looking forward to facing the challenges ahead of me.

I pray for everyone's happiness.

Please do not forget that Jesus loves everyone.

God Bless!

The Murton Family
