Hitoki Iwase May Stay In Japan

Closer Hitoki Iwase has received two offers (link in Japanese) from his team the Chunichi Dragons.  One is a one-year, $4MM offer.  The other is a four-year, $16MM offer - which would be the biggest contract in franchise history.

Iwase told the press that he was "very impressed with the offer, and definitely thinking about remaining a Dragon."  In that case he would not file for free agency.  Right now, the vibe is that he will stay in Japan.  The Royals, Cubs, and Rockies are among the MLB teams interested in his services.

Thanks to Tak Iwanaga for translating.
