Yomiuri Giants

It may have taken the Giants until Wednesday to approach Yasuyuki Kataoka because of their concerns about his injuries over the last few seasons -- he dislocated both shoulders on separate occasions in 2011, had problems with his right wrist (TFCC) in 2012, and had left knee problems this year.

Orix Buffaloes

According to the latest reports, there is a good chance Aarom Baldiris will not return to the Buffaloes next season.  The front office had been waiting to hear back from him, but without any word from his agent, they will now begin looking into other options, like Esteban German.

The Buffaloes still have their eye on Munenori Kawasaki, in case he becomes available.

Hiroshi Moriwaki is looking for a clean-up hitter that 1) can play defense, 2) knows how to run the bases, 3) can hit breaking balls.

Ryuzo Setoyama will head to the US on December 1 and will be out of the country for four days (he will spend two nights in the US).
