[9/6/2016] Yakult will most likely stay the course with Manaka

Mitsuru Manaka is in the second year of a three-year deal. He will most likely return next season to finish out the final year of his contract. The Yakult Swallows think highly of Manaka because he has managed to keep the team together despite a slow start and the loss of key players to injuries. Team owner Sumiya Hori still needs to approve the decision.
