Rakuten Eagles News and Notes: January 5, 2011

Hiroki Yamamura worked out at Kleenex Stadium on Tuesday (running and throwing into a net).  Yamamura was apparently the first to work out at K-Sta this year.  Yamamura also has plans of working out with Takeshi Saito (Brewers) later this month.

Shingo Matsuzaki, Kazuya Takahori, Ginji, and Shintaro Masuda also started their workouts on Tuesday.


Senichi Hoshino plans on bringing back the early morning walks and shouting matches during spring camp in February.

Hoshino also said the Eagles were a team of pistols with very few canons (Takeshi Yamasaki and Randy Ruiz).  But that's apparently not a major problem.

"I don't need a big cannon," said Hoshino.  "A pistol will do just fine.  Although, it does have to be a pistol that regularly hits its mark."
