Kimiyasu Kudo informed reporters on Saturday that he was thinking about accepting the managerial job with the Yokohama DeNA Bay Stars.  Kudo added that as part of accepting the job, he wanted the team to consider a number of conditions like enhancing the training staff (maybe 5-6 trainers during spring camp) to make sure players got the care they needed in order to avoid injuries.

He also said that he did not have any plans to be a pitcher/manager, was not sure when he would officially retire (the Bay Stars have not asked him to retire), and already gave the team his thoughts on coaching staff personnel.
