Phoenix League: quick notes

by on Oct.05, 2010 @ 4:10 am, under NPB

Chunichi Dragons: Takuya Asao is hoping to participate in the Phoenix League so that he can stay sharp until the start of the Final Stage of the Climax Series.

Seibu Lions: Takeya Nakamura wants to play in a few Phoenix League games so that he can work on his defense.  While it isn't certain if the Lions will play Nakamura on the field during the Climax Series (he was used primarily as a DH since he returned from elbow surgery on 8/25), it seems Nakamura wants to prepare for that possibility by getting some playing time at third in a handful of Phoenix League games.
