Loe and Aguila, meanwhile, disappointed the team early in the

Loe lost his spot in the rotation a month into the season after
going 0-4 with a 6.33 ERA in five starts, while Aguila batted only
.095 with no homers and no RBIs in 14 games.

''We'll continue to search for foreign players but we'll work
with the players we have now for the time being,'' said club
representative Masashi Tsunoda.
