The Lotte Marines have re-signed infielder Matt Franco and
outfielder Val Pascucci, team representative Ryuzo Setoyama said

Franco posted a .300 average with 21 homers last season to help
contribute to Lotte winning its first Japan Series title in 31 years,
while Pascucci was limited to just 33 games. Lotte outfielder Benny
Agbayani is returning to the Pacific League team on a two-year deal.

Setoyama suggested the club will acquire two new foreign players
to fill the voids left by infielder Lee Seung Yeop, who is set to
leave the team after talks ended in failure, and left-hander Dan
Serafini, who is close to signing with the Orix Buffaloes.
