Akira Ishikawa (team operating director) told reporters that the team is currently on the market for a closer and will be checking the foreign player market for possibilities.   Bob McCrory was originally signed as a possible option, but he's been hampered by tightness in his right shoulder.  Tatsuya Uchi was also an option, but he's at Ni-gun working his way back from a right ankle injury.
