Offseason Changes: Tokyo Yakult Swallows

by Patrick Newman (Feb 10, 2009)

Coming: Jaime D'Antona, Hei-Chun Lee, Ricky Barrett, Ryoji Aikawa, Ryosuke Morioka

Going: Adam Riggs, Dicky Gonzales, Sean Douglass, Wilson Valdez

Staying: Aaron Guiel, Chang Yong Lim, Ryota Igarashi

Trending: slightly upward

Synopsis: Aikawa arrives to give Yakult their first regular catcher since Atsuya Furuta retired, while hope springs eternal for untested foreigners D'Antona, Lee, and Barrett. I don't think any of these guys puts Yakult into playoff contention, but they should be more effective than the group they replace.
