[11/14/2013] Softbank Hawks closing in on deal with Hideki Okajima

According to Sponichi, the Softbank Hawks are talking to Hideki Okajima (37) about a possible second tour of duty.

Okajima return to Japan in 2012 after signing a deal with Softbank.  He was released after the season because he wanted to pitch in the US.  He signed a minor league deal with Oakland and spent most of the 2013 season at Triple-A Sacramento.

The Hawks knew how strongly Okajima felt about playing in the US, but they also knew he was open to returning under the right circumstances.  They made their interest known early and and it now seems the two sides might be close to some sort of an agreement.  An announcement could be made within the next few days.

Chunichi Dragons

According to Sports Hochi, the Chunichi Dragons may have offered Kenichi Nakata a four-year deal.

"We have spoken to him.  There is no doubt we need him.  We will show him as much good faith as possible.  We think a four-year deal could work," team official Norihito Nishiwaki said.

The Dragons are planning to let their new manager make decisions on Matt Clark and Warner Madrigal.

The team has already decided to Hector Luna and Daniel Cabrera back in 2014.  Bradley Bergesen was released in September.

Motonobu Tanishige may now be the leading candidate to replace Morimichi Takagi as manager of the team in 2014 (whether he returns as a player/manager or retires is something that would have to be discussed).  There is also talk Shigekazu Mori could return as head coach to assist Tanishige.

The New York Yankees have an interest in Masahiro Tanaka. From the New York Post:

The Yankees have heavily scouted Japanese right-hander Masahiro Tanaka. According to a person following Tanaka, the Yankees have seen a lot of Tanaka's starts. Assistant general manager Billy Eppler and special assignment scout Don Wakamatsu watched Tanaka pitch for the Rakulen Eagles last week.

Tanaka, 24, will have to go through the posting process because he isn't eligible for free agency. He is 75-35 with a 2.50 ERA during his career in Japan.

Source: New York Post 9/2/2013

Texas Rangers, San Francisco Giants, and Minnesota Twins among other teams that have also scouted Tanaka.

"It was good," Showalter said of Wada, who had Tommy John surgery in May 2012. "He threw well. He's come on little by little. That's kind of the par for the course for his surgery. You're going to have some struggles early on. He's gotten more confidence with his fastball. … You don't feel real comfortable throwing the ball in the zone for a while with a little different elbow. I think he's gotten over that now." [Baltimore Sun 9/1/2013]
