Naoya Washiya (in the Washington Nationals minor league system) is currently working out with Akinori Iwamura in Okinawa. Washiya apparently got a good mouthful from Iwamura on Wednesday during workouts because he wasn't taking his training seriously.
There are currently 9 other players working out with Iwamura, double from last year.
Ryota Igarashi was assigned the number 18. He told reporters he was happy because he always wanted to wear the number 18.
Brandon Wood apparently has a number of things he wants to ask Hideki Matsui.
