      The Nikkan Sports reported this morning that the Yakult Swallows will
      acquire 30 year old Eric Todd Anthony, an outfielder who has appeared with
      five major league teams since his debut in 1989.

      Anthony has played 682 games with the Astros, Mariners, Reds, Rockies and
      Dodgers and has hit 78 career home runs with 259 RBIs and a lifetime .231
      batting average.

      In 1997, he appeared in 47 games with the Los Angeles Dodgers, compiling
      74 at bats, two home runs, five RBIs and a .243 average. Earlier in the
      season, he batted .444 with AAA Oklahoma and .343 with AAA Albuquerque.

      This season, Anthony has played in 55 games with Albuquerque, compiling
      ten home runs, 26 RBIs and a .305 average.

      The Nikkan speculated that Anthony would replace Lyle Mouton on the Yakult
      varsity team.

        Eric Anthony was supposed to be "the next big thing" as a rookie with Astros
        but has been bouncing around the majors for years. He would probably be a
        good fit in Japan. What is Julio Franco doing? I hear he may be near the end
        over there.
