The Softbank Hawks announced today that they agreed to terms with 22-year-old Edison Barrios.

Regarding Yhency Brazoban, Koji Akiyama told reporters today that he'll spend some time (about 10 days) at Ni-gun before making it to the active roster.

"He'll pitch at Ni-gun first," said Akiyama.  "I'm sure he doesn't know what Japanese baseball is about and he'll probably need some time to get rid of the jet lag."

Brazoban has more or less agreed to terms with the team and could arrive in Japan on the 31st.
