Yakult Swallows interested in Young-Soo Bae?

by on Oct.16, 2010 @ 10:52 pm, under NPB

The Yakult Swallows are apparently interested in 29-year-old right-handed pitcher Young-Soo Bae (KBO, Samsung Lions).  The Swallows have already sent their international scout to watch the Samsung Lions play in the KBO playoffs (10/7 - 10/13) and the KBO Series (began on 10/15).  But in order for the Swallows to go full bore for Bae, he'll need to show that there are no problems with his right arm / elbow (he's had problems with his arm and had right-elbow surgery in 2007).

The Swallows most likely consider Bae as a back-of-the rotation pitcher, perhaps in the 6th slot.
