Chunichi Dragons

Masahiko Morino will not exercise his FA option.  He signed a two-year deal.  His salary for 2014 will be an estimated 160 million yen (no change over the past season).  His salary for 2015 will likely change based on expected performance.  His uniform number will also change from thirty to seven.  Seven was the number he wore when he first joined the team.

Norihiro Nakamura decided to accept Yokohama's offer (fifty million yen plus performance bonuses).

"There were a lot of things to consider, but the face in Yokohama have been very supportive and I wanted to give back to them by helping the team make it to the Climax Series," Nakamura said.

Kazunari Tsuruoka also decided to accept Yokohama's offer.
