Free agent Akinori Otsuka, who missed last season following elbow surgery, plans to throw for teams next month.
Otsuka's former teams, the Padres and Rangers, both figure to be interested, and they won't be the only ones if Otsuka comes out throwing close to 100 percent. The soon-to-be 37-year-old right-hander has a 2.44 ERA in 236 appearances as a major leaguer. Sat, Dec 27, 2008 02:43:00 PM
