Hanshin Tigers

...Kazuhito Futagami signed a hefty contract with the Tigers on Friday and plans on using some of it to give back to his old high school and college, as well his parents, for all the support they have given him over the years.

Seibu Lions

...The Lions met with 6th r0und draft pick Yosuke Okamoto for their second round of negotiations on Friday.  The two sides have not been able to come to an agreement on contract terms.  Okamoto does want to turn pro so it is expected that the two sides will come to an agreement, perhaps as early as next week when the two sides meet once more.

Yokohama Bay Stars

...The Bay Stars offered 3rd round draft pick Taketora Anzai a contract worth 5M yen and a signing bonus of 45M yen.
