Bay Stars looking into Koji Uehara

If Koji Uehara doesn't mind returning to Japan next season, the Bay Stars will likely be ready to make him an offer.  They're apparently looking into him right now as a closer so that they can move forward with their plan to convert Shun Yamaguchi to a starter.  Yamaguchi was supposed to make that transition this season, but with instability in the bullpen, that plans was temporarily scrapped.

UPDATE: the Tigers are also looking into Uehara as well.
