Nippon Ham Fighters: January 11, 2012

Yuki Saito attended a Waseda Jitsugyo High School alumni gathering in Tokyo today and was advised by Sadaharu Oh not to worry about people around him and to just focus on doing what he is capable of doing.  Saito told reporters that he would like to toss a bullpen session as early as possible.


7th round draft pick Takumi Oshima is apparently reviewing footage of Ken Griffey Jr's swing for ideas on how to improve his swing.

And according to Takahiro Matsuka, who watched Oshima take BP on Tuesday, his swing was a lot more compact than he expected.


Shinya Tsuruoka is currently working out with a group of players, including Eiichi Koyano and Takayuki Takaguchi (LOT), in Tokunoshima, Kagoshima.  He has also managed to add about 7-8kg since October 2011 by following some advice given by Yu Darvish.
