A little more information has come out on Chang-Yong Lim's contract with the Yakult Swallows.
As mentioned yesterday, it's a 2-year deal that includes a "mutual" option for a third year. If Lim stays with the Swallows for the max three years, he could earn up to 1.42B yen. He'll also be making 360M yen, plus incentives, in the first year of the deal, which is a new club high for pitchers. The previous team high of 240M yen was set by Kazuhisa Ishii in 2006.
Incidentally, Lim is currently 34. Club officials told reporters yesterday that they felt he still had plenty left in the tank. At this point, it also appears as though Lim will finish out his career in the NPB.
