It appears as though the Hawks will be signing both foreign players they held tryouts for back on 4/18: pitchers Michael Olmsted and J.D. Durbin.  By sending both Hisao Arakane (OF) and Keisuke Kaneko (INF) in a trade with the Orix Buffaloes for Takehito Kanazawa (P), the Hawks opened up an extra spot on the 70-man roster, allowing them room to sign both foreigners.
