Orix: Akinobu Okada to allow players to leave fall camp early?

Akinobu Okada is apparently thinking about letting players that are working on comebacks for the 2011 season (like Masayuki Hasegawa, Daisuke Kato, Satoshi Komatsu, and Kazuki Kondo) the ability to decide on their own when to leave fall camp.  Said Okada, "I think about letting players like Kato leave after they get a good feel of things.  These guys have put up results [in the past] and it might also be ok to just let them go after the second block (11/14) of practice."

It would seem Okada wants these players to leave camp on a positive note.
