Takashi Toritani (33) contacted Hanshin official Eiichi Takano directly on the 25th to let him know that he was not going to be able to finalize his decision before the end of the year. The Tigers are hoping to get a decision by mid-January because they can not make any moves until they know for certain where Toritani will be playing next year.

Negotiations between the Orix Buffaloes and Takahiro Okada (26) are ongoing. An agreement might not be reached before the end of the year.

The last official day of business this year for Orix is the 29th. Source: Daily Sports 12/27/2014 ... Okada only has time on the 28th.
