Yomiuri Giants

The Giants will most likely lose two players as compensation for signing Kan Otake and Yasuyuki Kataoka.  The Carp have already expressed an interest in pursing a player plus money as compensation for losing Otake.  The Lions will most likely select a player plus money since they will not gain a lot by selecting only money and they know the Yomiuri system is stacked.

Softbank Hawks

Shinya Tsuruoka will most likely be assigned the number eight.

Seibu Lions

The Lions are reportedly interested in Alex Ramirez.  They feel he still has enough left in the tank to succeed as a DH or a right-handed bat off the bench.  They also feel he can help players out with hitting advice.  His positive attitude and popularity among fans are big pluses.

Darrell Rasner, Jim Heuser, Kenny Ray, and Brandon Duckworth were left off the list.
