Hanshin Tigers

Daiki Enokida (1st round) might end up becoming his hometown's kabutomushi ambassador.

Nippon Ham Fighters

Yuki Saito (1st round) spoke of how he'll be on the giving end of otoshidamas instead of the receiving end. ... Saito handed out snacks to reporters that were waiting around for him to finish rounding his things up for his move out of the Waseda dorms on Tuesday.  He also told reporters that he planned to spend most of his winter break (through to about 1/10) at home.

FYI: otoshidama = parents (and relatives) give their children money on New Year's Day up until they graduate from college, when they're now considered adults.
