According to Daily Sports, the Softbank Hawks are looking into thirty-two-year-old Kevin Correia.
The Hawks met with the Correia camp during the Winter Meetings in the US and have apparently begun initial discussions. A number of MLB teams are reportedly interested in the right-handed pitcher and it seems he is looking for a multi-year deal worth a few millions dollars a year. The Hawks are still not sure if Correia is interested in pitching in Japan.
