According to a report by Sponichi, the Softbank Hawks are interested in thirty-six-year-old Alfonso Soriano. Soriano still has two years left on his contract, but the Chicago Cubs may move him. The Hawks might be willing to take on the remaining two years of his contract, if he has has an interest in playing in Japan.
Wily Mo Pena is slated to return next season. Bryan LaHair was recently signed to a two-year deal with an option for a third year. Softbank chairman Sadaharu Oh did tell reporters he did not expect the team to move on any additional foreign position players, but Soriano may be the exception.
