According to Nikkan Sports, the Orix Buffaloes are planning to begin extension talks with Aarom Baldiris (30) and Dae-Ho Lee (31) shortly.  The organization could offer Baldiris a multi-year deal worth 100 million yen a year, which would be double his current estimated salary of 50 million yen.  They will also probably offer Lee a similarly lucrative deal.

Sports Hochi reports that the Buffaloes are planning to offer Baldiris a two-year deal with a yearly salary of 100 million yen.  They also mention that Orix is feeling good about their chances of signing Lee to an extension after holding preliminary discussions with the slugger.
