Yoshihiro Doi arrived in Los Angeles on the 26th (27th in Japan) and it seems at least 4 scouts will be attending his 2-day tryout that begins on the 28th (29th in Japan).  Doi had been practicing with an MLB ball since fall practice at Seibu 2 Stadium and told reporters that he didn't have any problems adjusting to the ball and that he felt his shuto and two-seamer were a bit more lively.

22-year-old infielder Shogo Shashiki (Meiji University) is apparently with Doi and will be working out with him in the US.  Shashiki did submit a letter intent for the draft, but was not selected.
