Free agent Jose Fernandez has opted to stay in Japan and sign with the Orix Buffaloes.
It was reported last month that Fernandez was back looking for a job in the U.S. after six years in Japan. However, he wasn't going to get more than a minor league contract from an MLB team. The 34-year-old will be guaranteed about $1.1 million from Orix. Thu, Jan 15, 2009 01:49:00 PM

Jose Fernandez is reportedly back in the U.S. looking for work after six years in Japan.

Fernandez, 34, hit .293/.365/.519 with 159 homers in 2,886 at-bats in Japan. He finished last season at .301/.368/.475. Since he doesn't have much defensive value as a corner infielder, it's likely that he'll have to settle for a minor league deal.
