It appears that Eri Yoshida has decided to play for the Chico Outlaws this season. It doesn't appear as though she has signed an official contract with the Chico Outlaws yet, but according to published reports, she has already decided that she wants to play in the US.
I bet the Mie Three Arrows are bummed. I'm guessing they were banking on her signing with their team in order to put more fans in the stands. It's a pretty important year for the team, considering it's year #1 for the Japan Future Baseball League.
Still, this decision is about Yoshida. As such, I wish her the best of luck. And I'll continue to post updates about her as long as the news continues to flow.
