Softbank Hawks: Tadaatsu Nakazawa fractures his right ring finger

by on Nov.07, 2010 @ 2:32 pm, under NPB

Tadaatsu Nakazawa fractured his right ring finger during base-running practice on the 5th.  Nakazawa returned to Fukuoka to rest (about 3 weeks) and get a cast.


Kenji Otonari threw 30 pitches in the bullpen yesterday.  One of the things Otonari is working on during the off-season is polishing his curve.


Jonathan Plefka tossed situational BP yesterday and gave up 2 could-be hits to 9 batters he faced.  He also threw 44 pitches, worked on his pick-off move and quick motions to the plate.

Nikkan Sports also notes that Plefka had aspirations of becoming a basketball player.
