The media learned on September 7 that the Yakult Swallows are planning to part ways with thirty-five-year-old Ross Ohlendorf. They are expected to place him on waivers.
Ohlendorf is currently in the United States. He left Japan on August 17 to get a second opinion on his right shoulder.
[UPDATE 9/14 @ 4:27pm]
The NPB changed Ohlendorf’s status to free agent today.
