Hirokazu Sawamura (1st round) impressed a number of the veteran Giant pitchers, like Tetsuya Utsumi, Shun Tono, and Yuya Kubo, when he started throwing at a distance between 80-90 meters (without stepping into the throw since he already had his legs apart) during a game of catch yesterday.  Sawamura also had the chance to do some training with Utsumi for about 30 minutes.
