CHIBA (Kyodo) The Japan Series champion Chiba Lotte Marines are moving toward the acquisition of Arizona Diamondbacks right-handed reliever Carlos Rosa, a senior club official said Sunday.

“We are examining the possibility of adding him to our pitching staff,” Akira Ishikawa said. “There is another candidate. We’d like to move things forward quickly.”

Rosa made his major league debut in 2008 with the Kansas City Royals and has an 0-2 career record with one save and a 3.97 ERA in 31 relief appearances over the past three seasons.
