The Yomiuri Giants are preparing a list of 50 prospects they'd like to draft.

While the team will likely make Hisayoshi Chono their first round pick, they are also preparing a list of 50 players they're interested in.  One of the players said to be on the list is 18-year-old catcher Genki Kawano out of Kyushu International University Boys' High School.  The team could be looking at him as a possible replacement for Shinnosuke Abe at some point in the future.
