Outfielder Atsunori Inaba, who recently gave up on a plan to move to the major leagues after an offer never materialized, said Wednesday he has agreed to a one-year deal worth 60 million yen with the Nippon Ham Fighters.

Inaba, who declared free agency from the Yakult Swallows after playing with the Central League club for 10 seasons, had been in negotiations with a major-league team but opted to join the Fighters after the deal fell through.
