...The Tigers assigned Kazuhito Futagami the number 18 and Masanori Fujihara the number 15.
...The Lions offered 5th round draft pick Kenta Matsushita a contract worth 10M yen with a signing bonus of 35M yen.
...The Lions are currently thinking about letting Yusei Kikuchi take his time developing at Ni-gun.
"Kikuchi is the type of player that comes once every 10 or 20 years," said team owner Takashi Goto. "There's a lot of expectations, we'll let the coaches that work with him make the [final] decision. Even if it means a full season at Ni-gun, we'll let the coaches decided."
...The Giants offered 4th round draft pick Tomoya Ichikawa a contract worth 10M yen and a signing bonus of 60M yen. He was also assigned the number 27.
According to my notes, Hisayoshi Chono is the only remaining player not yet offered a contract. The Giants will likely offer Chono a contract once the Industrial League Championships end.
