It seems the Softbank Hawks may be looking to sign up to two free agents this off-season.  One of them could be Seiichi Uchikawa (Yokohama), if he becomes a free agent, or Morimoto Hichori (Nippon Ham).  The other could be a catcher: the team could look into possible free agents Takeshi Hidaka (Orix), Toru Hosokawa (Seibu), and Tomoya Satozaki (Lotte).

If the Hawks do go after two free agents, it would be the first time since the 1994 off-season when they signed Kimiyasu Kudo and Hiromichi Ishige away from the Seibu Lions.
