The Orix Buffaloes have reportedly agreed to a deal with Brad Mills, according to The Dallas Morning News' Gerry Fraley.

The Texas Rangers gave up a bit of pitching depth on Thursday by releasing major-league veteran LHP Brad Mills from his contract so that he could sign a more lucrative deal with Orix of the Japan Pacific League.

There are no reports to confirm the deal in the Japanese press so far (all the Japanese articles I have come across mention US sources).

UPDATE @ 6:44pm -

According to a Daily Sports report, the Buffaloes have not yet officially agreed to a deal with Mills.
