Chris Leroux to pitch in Japan


Chris Leroux has agreed to terms with the Yakult Swallows, Ben Nicholson-Smith reports.

The Pirates designated Leroux for assignment a couple weeks ago after a weak start to the season, and he became a free agent. I'd held reasonably high hopes for Leroux back in 2011, but he never really did much to justify them. He cleared waivers after being designated for assignment, so apparently other teams felt the same way.
