It seems Akinori Iwamura and Kazuo Matsui will be working out together beginning on 12/1 at the indoor facilities at Jingu Stadium.


Senichi Hoshino has mentioned batting Takeshi Yamasaki in the 6 slot.  During the player's golf tournament on Monday, Yamasaki responded by saying he didn't mind where he batted, so long as there was someone that was better suited to hit clean-up.


On Sunday, Masahiro Tanaka provided his thoughts about the possibility of pitching against Yuki Saito next season:

I think it's a good thing.  It's something that'll probably get the fans excited.  It's pro yakyu after all.  It's all about having the fans watch.  And if it'll make them happy.
