The Softbank Hawks are close to signing 28-year-old RHP Anthony Lerew.  The two sides are apparently working on the final details of a contract and an announcement of a deal could be made soon (Sponichi is figuring a 1-year deal worth around 50M yen).

Lerew was drafted by the Atlanta Braves in 2001.  He signed with the Kansas City Royals after being released by the Braves in 2009.  He was released by the Royals in October 2010 and signed with the Oakland Athletics in November.
