Opening batsman Camden Hawkins joins 14 other returners who were offered contracts in the first round.
More notable is right-arm medium fast bowler Jarrod McKay.
A 19-year-old from Nelson, McKay moves south after finding his way blocked in a quality Central Districts bowling attack.
He has one first class match, against Northern Districts, to his name.
In that match he took two wickets for 77 runs.
In a statement, Otago Cricket performance manager Simon Forde said the offers reflected the side’s two priorities.
The first was retaining its current squad — which Hawkins had been part of.
The second was boosting its seam bowling depth — which it had done through McKay.
‘‘[McKay] is an exciting young prospect who will add significant value to our bowling stocks this season and into the future,’’ Forde said.
‘‘He’s a big man who will provide a point of difference to the attack.’’
McKay joins Jacob Duffy, Nathan Smith, Matt Bacon and Michael Rae in Otago’s seam bowling line-up.
