Nippon Ham Fighters
7th round draft pick Takumi Oshima's bat went flying during soft-toss BP on Friday and almost hit Ni-gun manager Shinichi Igarashi. He also told reporters he never wore a cup while playing softball and ordered two of them after he was told they were necessary.
Kazuyuki Hoashi worked out in Yamaga, Kumamoto on Saturday. His workouts included running and playing catch.
1st round draft pick Ken Togame is ok with becoming a swing man (although he does aspire to be a starter), similar to the way Kazuhisa Makita was used in 2011.
2nd round draft pick Hirotaka Koishi's goal for 2012 is to improve his control.
