Oakland A’s interest in Hisashi Iwakuma is ‘lukewarm’

Oakland is one of the four teams to have inquired about the Japanese pitcher, the A’s are “lukewarm” about Hisashi Iwakuma.   I’m told that there are two teams with “viable” interest in Iwakuma, and the A’s aren’t one of them.

   It would have been a neat full circle, though, if Oakland were to have landed the right-hander. The A’s won the bidding for Iwakuma’s posting fee last winter but were unable to come to terms with Iwakuma and his then-agent, Don Nomura, after negotiations that were at times testy. Iwakuma missed time last season with a shoulder injury, and he is now a free agent, with no posting fee required.
