[9/23/2017] Orix planning to offer Mamoru Kishida a new contract

Thirty-six-year-old Mamoru Kishida is in the final year of a three-year contract. The Orix Buffaloes are planning to offer him a new contract if he wants to keep playing in 2018. The Buffaloes like his experience and his popularity. Kishida will most likely have to take a large cut in salary based on his performance this year. He told reporters he felt he could still pitch and that he wanted to play for as long as possible.

[9/21/2017] Orix Buffaloes checked on talent in the US in August

The Orix Buffaloes sent scouts to the US for about a month in August to check on talent (with a focus on pitchers) at the MLB and Triple-A levels.

Stefen RomeroChris Marrero, and Brandon Dickson will be returning next year. The Buffaloes like Gonzalez Germen, but it is uncertain where he will end up next year. Phil Coke and Matt West struggled with injuries this year and are currently at Ni-gun.

[9/20/2017] Junichi Fukura will stay on as manager in 2018

Buffaloes’ President Hiroaki Nishina told reporters today that Junichi Fukura will remain manager of the team in 2018 (they will most likely agree to a one-year contract). Fukura took over as an interim manager during the 2015 season. He became the official manager in 2016. Team officials are not fully satisfied with the team’s performance this year, but like the general direction the team is currently heading. They are not expecting a championship next year, but rather continued improvement (so at least a ticket to the Climax Series).
