Chunichi resets active roster, how will player’s union react?

The Chunichi Dragons ended up removing all their players from the active roster earlier today (as they mentioned they might earlier).

The Central League told reporters that there are no rules that prevent teams from doing such, but the growing concern appears to be how the player's union will react to the move.  Players that have been removed from the active roster cannot be added back to the active roster for a minimum 10 days.  And since all days through to the end of the Climax Series count towards a player's FA eligibility, the player's union may ultimately file a complaint about the Dragons' decision to remove every player from the active roster since it means some players will be shortchanged 10 days.
