The Yokohama BayStars have agreed to terms with former Nippon
Ham Fighters outfielder Terrmel Sledge for the 2010 season, baseball
sources said Wednesday.

The deal will be announced as early as Thursday.

Sledge led the Pacific League champion Fighters with 27 homers
and 88 RBIs in 2009, his second season in Japan.

The 32-year-old hit a walk-off grand slam in Game 1 of the PL
Climax Series second stage against the Rakuten Eagles and drove in a
total of 12 runs in the postseason.

The BayStars were looking to add a left-handed power hitter to
the lineup.
