Orix Buffaloes

...The Buffaloes offered 5th round draft pick Toru Anan a contract worth 10M yen and a signing bonus of 40M yen.

Softbank Hawks

...The Hawks offered 3rd round draft pick Yuki Shimooki a contract worth 6M yen and a signing bonus of 50M yen.

My notes indicate that the Hawks have one player left that has not been offered a contract.

Yomiuri Giants

...The Giants offered 1st round draft pick Hisayoshi Chono a contract worth 15M yen and a signing bonus of 100M yen to go along with 50M yen in incentives.

According to my notes, other than Naomasa Yokawa, who opted for college, the Giants have now signed every player they drafted this year.  Behind the Nippon Ham Fighters, they are only the second team to sign all their players so far.
