Player comments

Kubo: The news came to me out of the blue. It still hasn't really sunk in yet. I was brought up in the Kansai area so I know the Tigers well. I'm really grateful to the Chiba Lotte Marines [for this chance]. I'm also grateful to all the fans for their support through the years. I look forward to inter-league play this year.

Hashimoto: I'm happy to have played for such a good team. I'll do my best with the Lotte Marines so we can hopefully meet up with the Tigers not only during inter-league play, but also during the Nippon Series.
