Hideki Okajima(notes) has been a reliever for the Boston Red Sox since joining the league in 2007. Now he's hoping to ply his trade in another big league city, according to the Boston Globe.

Okajima currently is on the roster of the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox, where he started the season, but he didn't want to be called up to replace the injured Rich Hill(notes). "I'd rather not be called up in this situation,'' he said, the Globe reports.

Okajima was called up earlier this season and went 1-0 with a 4.37 ERA over 8.1 innings in seven games. He was designated for assignment on May 20, cleared waivers and rejoined Pawtucket. "It's definitely a new start for me,'' Okajima said, the Globe reports. "I'm in a new position. It's all about pitching well and hopefully along the line another team will show more interest in me and I can be traded."
