Koji Uehara Not Eligible For Free Agency

We've spilled a decent amount of Internet ink on righty pitcher Koji Uehara.  He's a control pitcher and longtime starter who was used in relief by the Yomiuri Giants this season (perhaps to spite him). 

Now comes word that the hamstring injury that knocked him out for the season's first month caused him to fall just short of the service time needed for free agent eligibility.  Unless the Giants post him (unlikely), he's off the radar for MLB teams this winter.  (Thanks to Mike Plugh of Uehara Watch for the info).  Fortunately for MLB fans, Kosuke Fukudome did maintain eligibility despite an injury late in the year.
