Seibu Lions’ official Haruhiko Suzuki told the media on December 11 that they received a list of unprotected players from the Yomiuri Giants. The Lions will check the list to see if there is a player they want as part of their compensation package for losing Ryoma Nogami. They are hoping to reach a decision by December 25.
