Orix Buffaloes

...The Buffaloes offered 2nd round draft pick Motoki Higa a contract worth 12M yen and a signing bonus of 60M yen and 10M yen in incentives.

The Buffaloes have now offered contracts to all five of the players they drafted.

Seibu Lions

...Katsuya Nomura's comments on Yusei Kikuchi:

He's a lefty and can throw 150km/h.  Ma-kun couldn't throw that hard during his first year.  Seibu has a former pitcher as manager, I'm sure he'll do much better than Ma-kun.
