Ryuzo Setoyama met with Shota Ohmine on Sunday and then announced that the Chiba Lotte Marines will indeed sign the 3rd round draft pick a contract.

Said Setoyama, "He was very remorseful.  We'd like him to make a new start of it with Lotte.  Hopefully he'll use all that has happened to help him get ahead in life."

The two sides will likely sign an official contract sometime on the 22nd.  It will be for less than the amount that was originally agreed on (6M yen plus 40M yen in bonuses).
