Japaneese team interested in Mike Loree

The Rakuten Eagles will be taking a look at Mike Loree this fall...

Loree was the 2011 Atlantic League Pitcher of the Year posting 14 wins and a 1.98 ERA. He was signed towards the end of the season by the Pirates organization and had a 1.17 ERA in 4 games with Altoona in the Eastern League (AA).

I find it interesting that Mike wasn't picked up earlier in the season last year, especially with the season he was having. He's only 25, and has a huge upside, but has been inconsistent and had a dreadful 2010 in Newark. I'll be shocked if a major league organization doesn't give him a serious look this offseason.
