Chunichi Dragons

...visited 3rd round draft pick Ryoji Nakata on Monday.

The 115kg Nakata said that he'd like to steal 10 or more bases (he's actually a lot faster than he looks).  Nakata also apparently eats 5 meals a day.  He also usually keeps snacks (rice balls and pieces of cheese) handy on the side for when he gets hungry during practice.

Said Nataka, "I can't exercise on an empty stomach."

Nippon Ham Fighters

...Masaru Nakamura already has his eyes set on Shugo Fujii's number 18.

Seibu Lions

...The Lions will enter Yusei Kikuchi's name into the player registry as "Kikuchi Yusei."
