Nippon Ham Fighters: Masataka Nashida jokes about starting Yu Darvish on 2 days of rest

Masataka Nashida jokingly told reporters today that he could probably start Yu Darvish on 2 days of rest because the pitcher was capable of doing anything.

"He's the type that can accomplish anything," said Nashida.  "I think starting him on 2-days of rest and having him throw left-handed would be good. ... I think he could probably even hit 125-130km/h."

This comment from Nashida comes about a week after Darvish told reporters that he'd welcome the opportunity to pitch on 2-3 days of rest.
