It seems the Swallows are interested in signing 26-year pitcher Eulo De La Cruz and 28-year-old infielder Josh Whitesell to extensions for the 2011 season.  A club rep told reporters that the Swallows wanted to continue developing De La Cruz and that they were preparing to sit down with Whitesell's agent to talk about a possible extension.

Yakult Swallows to sign Eulogio De La Cruz?

It appears as though the Swallows are close to signing 25-year-old pitcher Eulogio De La Cruz.

De La Cruz is a right-handed pitcher who has spent most of his time in the Detroit farm system, along with two stops at Florida (2008) and San Deigo (2009).  According to the linked article, he tops out at 160km/h and will likely be considered for the starting rotation.  But a quick peak at his stats reveals he could better suited to the pen.  In 285 minor league appearances, De La Cruz has made just 64 starts.

If negotiations go smoothly, an announcement of the signing could be made sometime early next week.
