[3/26/2017] Desire to play in Majors grows stronger for Kazuhisa Makita

Kazuhisa Makita rejoined the Seibu Lions on March 25. He told reporters back in 2014 that he wanted to play in the Majors at some point in the future. The desire got a little stronger after this year’s World Baseball Classic appearance.

Assuming no time off the active roster, Makita should be able to earn his domestic free agent option this season. He turned down a multi-year contract this winter and might be mulling over a chance of scenery, but if he is serious about the Majors, he might get their quicker by staying with the Lions.
