The Hanshin Tigers held an organizational meeting earlier today to go over their list of potential draft prospects.  Seems they have about 100 players on their list, of which 24 are potential early rounders.  According to Masahiro Kuroda (front office), their list focuses on pitching and their early round candidates include a lot of college players and number of industrial league players.  Hirokazu Sawamura and Tatsuya Oishi are likely considered possible first round picks while Daiki Yoshikawa may be one of the team's backup first round picks.

The Tigers will likely hold another organizational meeting after the 10/14 deadline for college and high school player declarations.
