Lotte Marines reliever Brian Sikorski looks set to part ways
with the Pacific League club, sources close to this matter said

Lotte did not reach an agreement with Sikorski for next season
by the Nov. 15 deadline for exclusive negotiations.

Sikorski intends to have talks with other Japanese clubs
beginning Wednesday while leaving open the option of returning to the
United States.

The 35-year-old right-hander went 8-5 with 15 saves and a 2.19
ERA in 55 games for Lotte in 2009, his eighth season in Japan.

In the major leagues, he has a 4-5 career record with a 5.40 ERA
in 40 appearances.
