The Orix Buffaloes are apparently in the market for another catcher.

Said Akinobu Okada, "We have 6 catchers.  That's definitely not enough.  It's a position where there are a lot of injuries and I'd like at least one more."

Okada continued, "[The Tigers] will influence the market.  I don't really know what's going to happen.  Even if we have to make a trade, I still want at least one more catcher."

When asked about possible trade partners, Okada said, "Probably the Giants.  I wonder how many they have if you include their Ikusei players."

The Yomiuri Giants have 9 catchers and could be a possible trade partner.  But at this point, who knows how serious Okada really is.
