Chiba Lotte Marines to select Takuya Takahama as player compensation

Sanspo is reporting that the Chiba Lotte Marines will most likely select Takuya Takahama as their player compensation pick from the Hanshin Tigers.  The Marines are expected to make an official announcement at some point later today, in the afternoon.

While Takahama has played extremely well this spring, the one concern with him might be his knees.  If not for that, he may have made his way to the active roster with the Tigers a lot sooner.
