Bryan LaHair, who hit for a .230 average in 111 games last
season for the Softbank Hawks, will not return this year, the club
said Thursday.

The 31-year-old first baseman, whose difficult first season in
Japan was ended by an injury to his left hand that required surgery,
had another year left on his contract with the Hawks.

However, the Hawks' acquisition of slugging South Korean first
baseman Lee Dae Ho represented a major threat to LaHair's playing
time for the 2014 season.
