Hanshin Tigers

...Shunsuke Fujikawa informed Toho Gas of his desire to play in the pros next season.  He also finally filed the paperwork for turning pro on Friday.

...The Tigers will also be keeping a close eye on Waseda players next season, including players like Yuki Saito, Tatsuya Ohishi, Koji Udaka, and Hiroki Matsunaga.

Seibu Lions

...Yusei Kikuchi wants nothing more than to be able to think about baseball 24/7.  He also likes to tie everything into baseball.  For example, if you can't concentrate in class, then you concentrate at baseball; if you aren't willing to roll up your sleeves and do some of the dirty work, you'll never be good enough to be an ace.
