Mets, Dodgers among suitors
TOKYO -- Japan's Kazuo Matsui will choose from four major league teams courting him, according to media reports.
The 28-year-old switch-hitting shortstop didn't specify which teams he was considering, citing ongoing negotiations, the national Asahi newspaper and other major dailies reported Friday.
"I don't think it will take long to reach a decision," Matsui said.
Kazuo Matsui, a seven-time All-Star in Japan's professional leagues, batted .305 with 33 homers, 84 RBIs and 179 hits this year for the Seibu Lions.
