Masanori Ishikawa finished off the fourth year of a four-year deal this past season.  According to Nikkan Sports, he came to terms on a three-year extension with the Yakult Swallows today.  His salary will be 180 million yen plus incentives.  The Swallows reserve the right to make an adjustment in the third year.

"It was a disappointing year for me, but they offered me another multi-year deal.  I will not let the contract make me lazy, I will do my best to regain everyone's confidence once again," Ishikawa said.  "I want to win with the Swallows.  I would like to play for the Swallows as long as I can."
