The Softbank Hawks announced today that they signed former Yokohama Bay Star Hiroaki Onishi and former Hanshin Tiger Yuji Oshiro to Ikusei contracts.  They also announced that they re-signed three of their senryokugai players -- Akihiro Yanase, Ryuta Otahara, and Shunya Suzuki -- to Ikusei deals.

In other team related news:

Kenta Nakanishi got a new uniform number today: he'll be going from 27 to 31.  The number 27 is expected to become Toru Hosokawa's number.

Keisuke Katto met with the Softbank Hawks today and was offered a 2011 salary of 45M yen (up 36M yen over this past season).  The large amount apparently caught Katto off-guard and prompted him to put the offer on hold so that the can think things through.

The Softbank Hawks are apparently planning on signing Yokohama Bay Stars senryokugai Hiroaki Onishi to an Ikusei contract.  Onishi attended the 12-team tryouts on the 10th at Seibu Dome and went 4-for-4.  The Softbank Hawks are apparently pushing an Ikusei deal because they still aren't sure how many spaces they will have on their 70-man roster.

Hiroaki Onishi won’t attend second round of tryouts on the 24th

30-year-old Yokohama Bay Star senryokugai Hiroaki Onishi posted on his blog earlier today (via Sports Navi), that he had yet to receive an offer and that he won't be attending the second round of 12-team tryouts (Fukuoka on the 24th).  Seems Onishi feels he gave it his absolute best during the first round of tryouts on the 10th and that going a second time won't do him much good.
