Buffaloes might use Takahiro Okada as a DH

Takahiro Okada (ORI) still has a strained hamstring, but after the 22-year-old hit a pinch-hit grand slam in his at bat on the 16th, it seems Akinobu Okada is thinking about using using T-Okada as a DH in order to give him a couple more chances to swing the bat during their last 9 games.  Since playing out a full game as a DH might be a bit difficult for T-Okada at this point, Okada is also thinking about having T-Okada prepare himself to stay in games as a DH after he gets in as a pinch-hitter.
