The media learned on Tuesday that Denney Tomori (44) will be joining the Bay Stars' staff as an Ichi-gun pitching coach.  An announcement is expected within the next few days.

The Bay Stars apparently selected Tomori because he is a former Yokohama player; is still young; and has been working with the Boston Red Sox.

Current pitching coach Atsushi Kizuka will likely move into the role of bullpen pitching coach.
