Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters slugger Sho Nakata suggested Monday that he would test the free agent market this offseason.

“I haven’t figured it all out yet, but I hope I can talk to a number of people,” Nakata said after the Fighters closed out their season with a 3-1 win at the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles in the Pacific League.

Nakata, who acquired his domestic free agency rights this year, finished his 10th season with Nippon Ham with a .216 average, 16 home runs and 67 RBIs. For his career, the 28-year-old has 177 homers and 643 RBIs.

Nakata has been linked with a move to the Central League’s Hanshin Tigers.
