According to report by Sports Hochi, the Yakult Swallows are interested in twenty-six-year-old Matt Carasiti and thirty-three-year-old David Huff. The Swallows see Carasiti as a possible candidate to close. Huff pitched for the LG Twins this year. In nineteen games (seventeen starts) he went 6-4 with 2.38 ERA.

The Chicago Cubs released Carasiti so he could sign with the Yakult Swallows, according to a tweet by ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick.
