Nobuhiro Matsuda is apparently done with his attempt to learn the OF position as Nikkan Sports reports that he'll focus solely on playing third base next season.


Seiichi Uchikawa will be ready to play anywhere the team wants him to -- in addition to his OF glove and first baseman's glove, Uchikawa also apparently has his infielder's glove with him as well.

Over his career: 240 games at first; 183 games at second; 12 games at third; 31 games at short; and 363 games in the outfield.


While on the team's victory trip to Hawii: Tsuyoshi Wada spent about an hour (from 7:30am) running around in parks and on the beach on the 17th.
