As expected, the Yakult Swallows are posting third baseman Akinori Iwamura.

The third baseman has hit at least .300 with 30-plus homers the last three years. Philadelphia, San Diego, Cleveland and Boston are among the teams interested. He's not limited to third base, so he could have additional suitors.

Even after acquiring Kevin Kouzmanoff, the Padres did submit a bid for Akinori Iwamura prior to Friday's deadline.

The Rays, Red Sox, Indians and Phillies are also believed to have bid on the 27-year-old, though the Phillies said last week that they wouldn't. Iwamura would apparently get a look at second base if secured by the Padres. "We still feel Kooz is going to be our third baseman (in '07)," GM Kevin Towers said. The Yakult Swallows have until Thursday to accept the high bid for Iwamura.
