What happen to Akinori Otsuka? He was a very good closer for Texas and I was wondering why has he disappointed?

Any news on him?

From Wikipedia:

"Otsuka was not offered a new contract by the Rangers and became a free agent on December 12, 2007.

On January 10, 2008, Otsuka announced that he would undergo elbow surgery."

The last entry in his blog is from April and just says he's rehabbing in Arizona. Probably nothing has changed since then?

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
