Seibu: Aiming for Matsuzaka's acquisition, November 10th, 1:44
Interviews with officials showed that professional baseball and Seibu are conducting research aimed at acquiring pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka, who left China and Japan.
At the beginning of last month, pitcher Matsuzaka resigned from China and Japan, which had been informed of the policy to sign a contract next season, and expressed his intention to find a new transfer destination.
Under these circumstances, we learned from interviews with the people concerned that Seibu was conducting research aimed at acquiring Matsuzaka.
After the 12-team joint tryout in Osaka on the 12th, Seibu is expected to make an offer to the pitcher Matsuzaka.
Matsuzaka is 39 years old.
As the ace of Yokohama High School, he achieved consecutive spring and summer wins at Koshien.
He was enrolled in eight seasons until 2006, including winning the most wins for the third consecutive year from the first year.
After that, after moving to the major leagues and playing at Red Sox, I returned to the Japanese baseball world at Softbank four years ago.
Last year, we won the comeback award with 6 wins in China and Japan.
If Matsuzaka joins Seibu, it will return to the old nest for the first time in 14 years.
