The Hanshin Tigers met with Akihito Fujii for the second time this off-season earlier today and managed to come away with a new fill-in catcher for Kenji Jojima.

Fujii agreed to a 2-year deal worth a total 120M yen and will be relied on to fill in for Jojima as he works his way back from left knee surgery.

Fujii was also assigned the number 50.
