Yoshihiro Doi was in Compton, CA on the 28th (29th in Japan) for his tryout. Scouts from 8 MLB clubs were on hand to watch the tryout. Doi faced a total 9 batters during his tryout and struck out 3.
Said Doi, "It had been a while since I pitched in a game-like situation so I was a little nervous. But I was able to keep my pitches down and hit both sides of the plate. At this point, I think I did fairly well."
