The media learned on November 14 that the Orix Buffaloes are interested in twenty-eight-year-old Stefen Romero. The Buffaloes are looking for right-handed bats and, if Yoshio Itoi ends up leaving through free agency, another outfield option. They are also looking into Dai-Kang Yoh. Even if they sign him, Romero would still fill a need: a bat that can hit in the middle of the order.
