There is a chance thirty-two-year-old Josh Lueke will not be returning next year. Lueke left Japan out of Narita Airport on October 4. He skipped practices without permission on October 2 and was given a one-game suspension by the Yakult Swallows. The reason for his absence from practices may have had something to do with contract talks.
