It seems the Yakult Swallows and Rakuten Eagles have agreed upon a trade that will send 31-year-old pitcher Yuya Kamada from the Swallows to the Eagles in exchange for 32-year-old pitcher Koki Watanabe.

The Swallows were looking for a left-handed reliever, while the Eagles were looking for a right-handed arm that could spot-start and also provide some innings out of the bullpen.
