Yakult Swallows looking into Akinori Iwamura

The media learned on Sunday that the Yakult Swallows are looking into Akinori Iwamura (33).

Said Swallows' official Junsei Atarashi, "We need to look into [Iwamura].  We will listen to what the people on the field have to say before making a decision.  After all, he did once play for our team."

I should note that depending on the source, Atarashi's quote changes slightly.  For example, the above is from Daily Sports and they make it sound like they "need" to look into Iwamura while many of the other articles make it sound like they "probably will" look into the veteran.

** I forgot to add that it was reportedly Junji Ogawa that asked the front office to look into Iwamura.
