Softbank Hawks

The Hawks are planning on adding Tomoaki Egawa to the active roster today.  Egawa has done well at Ni-gun: he's 54-for-170 with a slash line of .318/.382/.524 (13 doubles, 5 triples, and 4 homers for 19 RBI).  He has also stolen 14 bases (caught 8 times).

Nippon Ham Fighters

Sho Nakata has 30 RBI this season.  7 of those RBI have come in games that Yu Darvish has started.  Nakata has also helped Darvish win 4 of his games this season.


Yuki Saito told reporters yesterday that he reads every fan letter he receives.  Incidentally, it seems it might rain on the day of Saito's next start (12th), at least that's what the weather report is calling for now.

Rakuten Eagles

Sanspo notes that Luis Alfonzo Garcia will be working out with the Ichi-gun roster today but can't be added to the active roster yet because he's still waiting on his visa.  And it seems when he does make it onto the active roster, it'll be at first, batting fifth.
