JoongAng Ilbo reports that Bae is a hepatitis B carrier and that an elbow surgery he required in 2007 (he flew out to LA) was denied because blood tests on his liver didn't come back very good.  Whether or not that's the reason why the Swallows turned Bae down is not known.  If Bae stays in Korea, it will be with Samgung.  (via Sponichi)

According to Sponchi, the Yakult Swallows have apparently given up on Young-Soo Bae after he failed to pass a team physical.  Some close to the situation told reporters that there wasn't anything wrong with the right elbow, but rather something with his health.  The Swallows obviously won't go into any further details out of respect for Bae's privacy.

The Swallows and Bae had already agreed on a deal with the Swallows going so far as picking out a number for him.

A Sports Hochi report says that the only thing that remains is a medical exam for Bae.  Assuming he passes that, the two sides should be ready to make the agreement official some time next week.

According to a report filed by Sponichi this morning, the Yakult Swallows are close to signing 29-year-old KBO pitcher Young-Soo Bae.  The Swallows are hoping Bae can help solidify the back-end of the starting rotation.

The Yakult Swallows apparently still have their eye on Young-Soo Bae (KBO).  And now that they have Chang-Yong Lim wrapped up, they'll be able to focus their attention on Bae.

It seems the Swallows might be a little concerned about Bae's right elbow (surgery in 2007), but overall are impressed with his abilities and feel he can start and pitch in relief.

Yakult Swallows interested in Young-Soo Bae?

The Yakult Swallows are apparently interested in 29-year-old right-handed pitcher Young-Soo Bae (KBO, Samsung Lions).  The Swallows have already sent their international scout to watch the Samsung Lions play in the KBO playoffs (10/7 - 10/13) and the KBO Series (began on 10/15).  But in order for the Swallows to go full bore for Bae, he'll need to show that there are no problems with his right arm / elbow (he's had problems with his arm and had right-elbow surgery in 2007).

The Swallows most likely consider Bae as a back-of-the rotation pitcher, perhaps in the 6th slot.
