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.
