It appears the Orix Buffaloes will be giving 39-year-old right-handed pitcher Hyang-Nam Choi a tryout between 7/6 and 7/11.  Choi will likely also get a chance to practice with the Ichi-gun team on the 8th.

Said club president Yoshio Murayama, "We already have a lot of pitchers and there is an issue with open foreign player slots.  Because of that, we really want to take a good look at [Choi] to see if he's worth signing."
