The Yakult Swallows are interested in thirty-four-year-old pitcher Ross Ohlendorf. They see him as an arm that might be able to help bolster their starting rotation.

The Chunichi Dragons were also reportedly interested in Ohlendorf, but have apparently turned their attention to twenty-five-year-old pitcher Elvis Araujo. An announcement of agreement could be made within the next few days.
