The Softbank Hawks said Thursday they have acquired the services
of right-hander Dennis Houlton, who had a stint with the Los Angeles
Dodgers in 2005 and 2007.

Houlton will sign with the Pacific League team for an annual
salary of 60 million yen.

The 28-year-old made 18 mound appearances with the Dodgers last
season but failed to post any wins. In 2005, he notched a 6-9 record
with Los Angeles. Houlton has a career 6-11 record and 4.99 ERA in
the majors.
