The Yakult Swallows are hoping both Chang-Yong Lim and Josh Whitesell return to the team for the 2011 season.  With regards to Lim, it seems the club may be willing to offer him a multi-year deal and / or a substantial raise (his 2010 salary is 146M yen) in order to keep him in Jingu.

Lim does have a desire to pitch in the Majors, so that may be another option, but he told reporters that he's still in the process of thinking things over.
