Chiba Lotte Marines

...The Marines are planning to register the Ohmine brothers by their first names: Yuta (older brother) and Shota (younger brother).  It also appears that the team is leaning towards giving Shota Bobby Valentine's old number of 2 since Yuta wears the number 1.

The team actually has four other sets of players not related by blood but with the same last name on the team:

Watanabe - Shunsuke and Masato

Hashimoto - Tasuku and Kentaro

Tanaka - Masahiko and Takahiro

Ogino - Tadahiro and newly drafted Takashi

Hiroshima Carp

...Shota Dobayashi will be starting his pro career as a third baseman.
