According to Daily Sports, Matsusaka passed his 2-day tryout with the Fighters.  The Fighters apparently really like his bat.

The Nippon Ham Fighters are giving Seibu Lions' senryokugai Kenta Matsusaka a tryout at their Ni-gun facilities in Kamagaya.  Seems the Fighters are fairly impressed with Matsusaka's bat (he hit 9 balls over the fence during BP and also hit a homer during the 12-team tryouts on the 12th) and will now check into his fielding abilities.

Matsusaka's tryout runs through to the end of today.
