Yataro Sakamoto threw 100+ pitches (fastballs and curves) to Takeya Nakamura during BP today.


Hideaki Wakui showed up and worked out at Seibu 2 Stadium for the first time this year.  His workouts included running, playing catch, and strength training exercises.  Wakui also worked out with other players like Tatsuya Oishi.


Oishi threw about 30 pitches (mostly fastballs) in the bullpen (half-bent catcher).  This was apparently his fourth bullpen session.  He also threw at about 60-70%.


Hisanobu Watanabe watched the 2011 draft class working out at Seibu 2 Stadium on Sunday.  He later told reporters about how he might try playing Hiroyuki Nakajima at third, Hideto Asamura at short, and Takeya Nakamura at first.

Incidentally, Nakamura told reporters that while he would like to play third, he also understands the team has needs.
