According to Nikkan Sports, the Chiba Lotte Marines are currently in the market for a foreign position player.  They plan on sending a member of the front office to the US within the next few days and the hope is that he'll return with a signed contract.

The Marines were initially interested in John Bowker (Pittsburgh Pirates), but it seems that negotiations broke down.  And while they were originally looking for a left-handed power bat, they'll be casting their net wider this time around.
