The Lotte Marines said Monday they have acquired right-hander
Seth Greisinger, who has won 47 games over five seasons in Japan.

The two sides have agreed to a one-year, $400,000 contract.

Greisinger, now 36, won at least 13 games in his first three
years in Japan, leading the Central League with 16 wins in 2007 for
the Yakult Swallows and 17 wins in 2008 for the Yomiuri Giants.

But he was 1-7 in just 15 appearances over the last two seasons,
plagued by elbow problems.

''He's had a good career in Japan, and we hope he'll fill one of
our rotation spots,'' said senior Lotte official Nobuhira Hayashi.

Greisinger has a record of 47-30 with a 3.25 ERA in Japan.
