Yanagita has expressed interest in moving to MLB, the Japan Times reports. He becomes eligible for international free agency next year, but he'll be in the second of a three-year contract with Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks.
Yanagita is the top hitter in NPB as he hit .352 with 36 home runs and a 1.092 OPS (second best in the league) last season. He just turned 30 years old, so he'd be in the decline phase of his career if he reaches MLB. However, he'll still find an active market for his services.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
After a couple of seasons linear progression as an emerging five-tool talent, Yanagita went parabolic in 2015, batting .363/.469/.631 with 34 home runs and 32 steals, en route to his first MVP award. Yanagita is no slouch with the glove either, covering ample ground in center field with a strong throwing arm. At 27, Yanagita may not get the chance to test himself in MLB during his prime, but regardless he's a top player in Japan to keep an eye on.
