Coming: Tadahito Iguchi, Gary Burnham, Chase Lambin, Juan Muniz
Going: Julio Zuleta, Jose Ortiz, Winston Abreu, Szu-Yu Wu
Staying: Brian Sikorski, Benny Agbayani, Saburo Ohmura, Naoyuki Shimizu, Shingo Ono, Tasuku Hashimoto
Synopsis: Iguchi is an upgrade over Ortiz, and the combination of Lambin/Burnham should be more productive than the injury-prone Julio Zuleta. None of Lotte's major Japanese free agency-eligible players chose to sign elsewhere for Bobby Valentine's final season.
