The Tohoku Rakuten Godlen Eagles’ managing director indicated Tuesday that the club would pursue free agent right-hander Chihiro Kaneko, the ace of the Pacific League’s Orix Buffaloes.

A day after Kaneko said he was not inclined to ask Orix to post him to the majors this winter, Eagles executive Hiroshi Abei said, “Now that he has clarified his stance, we want to start preparing an offer to him.”
