Over the next couple weeks, I'll be taking a look at player personnel moves made by each NPB this offseason. This series will not cover draftees or impact rookies, only additions and losses of experienced players. The focus will be on foreign players, but notable Japanese players will be included as well.
Coming: John Wasdin, Takayuki Shimizu
Going: Craig Brazell, Matt Kinney
Staying: Hiram Bocachica, Alex Graman, Koji Mitsui
Synopsis: very little change for the defending Japan Champions. It was a little bit of a surprise to see Brazell go after hitting 27 homers, but he did have a weak OBP. Shimizu arrives from Yomiuri for cash and should provide some bench/DH depth.
