It seems the Rakuten Eagles are currently looking into Chunichi Dragons senryokugai player Michihisa Sawai because he fits into Senichi Hoshino's game plan for the 2011 season.

Said batting coach Kochi Tabuchi, "We were thinking about going with power / extra base hits, but the stadium is a bit bigger than we initially thought and there's also wind.  We decided it would be better to consider singles and walks as a way to keep the line-up moving."
