Chunichi Dragons: April 22, 2010

...Hirokazu Ibata and Masahiro Araki were back at their "old" positions (that is, Ibata at second and Araki at short) on Wednesday night after Ibata complained of back stiffness.  Ibata and Araki had just started playing at their "new" positions on 17th (Araki start the season with a left leg injury).

Hiromitsu Ochiai told reporters he wasn't worried about them (they were playing defense just fine) and claimed that even in their current conditions, they were better than most middle infielders on other teams.
