While Yankees outfielder Hideki Matsui would like to remain in New York when his contract runs out, he would be open to the idea of playing in Seattle with fellow countryman Ichiro. Matsui is putting together another solid season, and could continue his strong play in a DH role for the next couple seasons.

Matsui is making 13 million dollars this season, and would definitely have to take a pay cut to play next season. Matsui, 35, will draw interest as a DH. The White Sox and Athletics could also become landing spots for Matsui. The Yankees have to decide how they want to configure their outfield in 2010, with Johnny Damon, Matsui, and Xavier Nady all up for free agency.
