34-year Kohei Oda decided not to exercise his domesticFA option and instead signed a deal worth 36M yen with the Chunichi Dragons earlier today.

Said Oda, "I had a tough time making this decision.  I wanted to play for a team that wanted me.  They said good things during our talks today.  I want to play well because I do not want to embarrass the team for thinking highly of me."
