Hiroshima Carp

...agreed to basic terms with Shota Nakazaki (6th round) today.  Contract 4.5M yen, bonus 25M yen.

Yakult Swallows

The Swallows are apparently preparing the numbers 23 and 66 for Tetsuto Yamada (1st round).  Number 23 used to be Norchika Aoki's number before he was assigned the number 1.  And the number 66 is symbolic of the player they'd like Yamada to become: Shinya Miyamoto (he wears the number 6).

Yomiuri Giants

...agreed to terms with Ryosuke Miyaguni (2nd round) today.  Contract 6M yen, bonus 60M yen.  Miyaguni was also assigned the number 30.

Seibu Lions

...agreed to terms with Ryo Hayashizaki (5th round) today.  Contract 10M yen, bonus 35M yen.
