Yakult: Daisuke Araki to return as pitching coach next season

It seems Akimitsu Ito (scouting department) will be taking over as Ni-gun pitching coach next season.  This comes on the heals of the clubs' recent announcement (on 9/25) that current Ni-gun pitching coach Soroku Yagisawa was leaving the club.

In addition to Ito joining the coaching staff, the Swallows apparently decided internally that both Daisuke Araki and Tomohito Ito will be returning to the team next season as Ichi-gun pitching coaches.
