Yohei Oshima (29) met with Chunichi for salary negotiations for the third time this off-season on Thursday and agreed to their original seventy-four million yen offer. He considered arbitration, but decided to sign. "This won't end unless someone folds. I've been a long-time fan so I don't really want to cause any problems for the Dragons. My wife telling me that there would be no guarantee I would be happy after arbitration was also a big factor." Oshima's wife also told him that he was already making enough money.

Hiroshima's Kenta Maeda (26) is expected to finalize his contract for the 2015 season before the end of the year. Maeda met the Carp on Thursday to lay the groundwork for a contract. He will most likely sign for 280 million yen (no change from this season). Source: Sports Hochi 12/19/2014
