Softbank Hawks

  • Ryuma Kidokoro joined the Ichi-gun team for practices on August 1. He was added to the active roster on July 31, but missed the Seibu game on the same day because he was in Fukuoka and could not make it to Tokyo until 8:30pm. Source: Sponichi 8/1/2015

Chiba Lotte Marines

  • Turmoil at the parent company could mean the team goes up for sale. LIXIL Group could be interested as buyers. They tried to purchase the Yokohama Bay Stars from TBS Holdings in 2010, but gave up when talks broke down. Source: ZakZak 8/1/2015
