Seems like Eric Stults will be heading to Japan (via MLB.com):

Teammates Tuesday said a deal that would sell Stults' contract to a team in Japan is imminent. Stults said he was told by his agent that it was premature to speak about it with reporters, and that a resolution might not occur until Wednesday. He did not work out with the club.

The Dodgers could not confirm a deal, but the left-hander was scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday in Tucson against the Rockies, and manager Joe Torre confirmed that Stults was no longer in the running to be his fifth starter.

Wonder if it's the Hanshin Tigers.  AFAIK, they were the last team linked to him.

No, he appears to be heading to the Hiroshima Carp.

Interesting...
