Hanshin Tigers

...5th round draft pick Shunsuke Fujikawa will likely make an announcement that he will sign with the Tigers instead of move on to Toho Gas.

Seibu Lions

...The Lions offered 6th round draft pick Yosuke Okamoto a contract worth 10M yen and a signing bonus of 30M yen.

According to my notes, the Lions have now offered contracts to all 6 of the players they drafted this year.  They are the third team to finish offering contracts to all their drafted players.
