The Mie Three Arrows announced on Monday that they have agreed to basic terms with Eri Yoshida. The contract itself will only become effective and official when / if she returns to play in Japan next year.
The contract was left open-ended in case a club in the US shows interest in Yoshida after she takes part in the Arizona Winter Leagues.

The Mie Three Arrows will save the uniform number 17 for Yoshida next year.
