Yakult Swallows likely won’t be going after any FAs during offseason

The Yakult Swallows don't appear to have any real interest in potential players that might be hitting the free agent market during the upcoming off-season.  When asked about players like Hitoshi Tamura (SOF) and Mitsutaka Goto (ORI), a club rep told reporters that the Swallows really had no interest (at least no interest in Tamura).

While the team could use a right-handed hitting power bat, the team may not make any moves in that area either since Junji Ogawa apparently feels that Yasushi Ihara and Kazuhiro Hatakeyama might be enough.
