Free agent right-hander Manabu Mima, who led the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles in innings pitched this year, is poised to join the Chiba Lotte Marines, a source said on Friday.

Mima went 8-5 this season for the Eagles. He threw 143⅔ innings with an 8-5 record and a 4.01 ERA. Mima, 33, turned pro out of the corporate leagues after the Eagles picked him in the second round of the 2010 draft.
