So what do we know about this guy?
mlbtraderumors.com interviewed Baseball Prospectus writer Mike Plugh.
Do you know of any specific teams that are expected to pursue Uehara? I've read that the Angels like him.
I think the Angels are the team to watch with Uehara, simply because they drafted him out of college many years ago. He almost came to the Majors as a 23-year old, but the lure of the Yomiuri Giants proved too strong to pry him away. There's a relationship there, albeit one from the distant past.
