Chunichi Dragons: Asao spends extra time on fielding

by on Oct.09, 2010 @ 4:10 am, under NPB

The Chunichi Dragons held 2-hour workouts at Nagoya Dome on Friday and Takuya Asao ended up staying back for extra fielding practice.  Seems he felt he needed a little extra work after taking infield drills during regular practice (specifically with grounders back to the mound that required throws to second and third).

In other team-related news:

Asao and Akifumi Takahashi will join the Dragon's roster in Miyazaki on the 10th in order to get some playing time at the Phoenix League.

Masahiro Yamamoto joined the Ichi-gun roster for practice on Thursday (10/7) after spending some time working out on his own at Worldwing in Tottori.
