Chiba Lotte Marines interested in Akichika Yamada

The Chiba Lotte Marines appear to be interested in 31-year-old right-handed pitcher Akichika Yamada.

Yamada was originally drafted by Daiei in 2000 but suffered setbacks in his development with injuries that led to surgeries on both his right (2006) and left elbows (2007); he also had surgery on his right shoulder after the 2008 season.  He was released by the Tigers after the 2008 season and  managed to latch on with the Fukuoka Red Warblers out of the Shikoku - Kyushu Island league this season.
