Kyodo reported Sunday that Matsui, a 28-year-old shortstop with the Seibu Lions, will announce his decision at a Monday news conference. The deal could be a three-year pact worth up to $20 million.
The switch-hitting Matsui, who was league MVP in 1998, batted .305 with 33 homers and 84 RBI for the Lions last season. He is a seven-time All Star and three-time Golden Glove winner.
