...Seems it'll be all or nothing for Masahiro Araki and his conversion over to short. Hiromitsu Ochiai told reporters that if he wasn't ready by opening day, he would not be allowed to go back to second because he doesn't want to keep pushing Hirokazu Ibata at short and that he would find another player that could.
Although it should be noted that the comment was also probably directed at Ibata as well, even though most of the focus appears to be on Araki.
