[9/23/2017] Yoshihisa Naruse not ready to hang up his uniform

Thirty-one-year-old Yoshihisa Naruse strongly wants to play next year. He made twelve starts at Ichi-gun this year and is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP over 16.2 innings of work.

The Yakult Swallows have not made any decisions on Naruse yet. The left-handed pitcher seems to be open to signing with another team.

[9/20/2017] Yakult Swallows planning to sit down with Wladimir Balentien

According to Sanspo, the Yakult Swallows are planning to sit down with Wladimir Balentien to talk about the 2018 season. Balentien is in the final year of a three-year contract that is worth an estimated three million US dollars this year. If the Swallows offer Balentien a new contract, it will most likely be a one-year deal.

The Swallows realize it is not easy to find a player on the foreign market that can hit thirty home runs a year. They are also short on players and losing him could create a big hole. However, nothing is set in stone with a new manager joining the fray and the Swallows continually checking the overseas market for new talent.

[UPDATE 9/23 @ 1:58am]

Balentien likes the Swallows and considered them his second home. He would like to return next year if possible. He is even open to finishing his career with the team.
