Yoshihisa Naruse worked out at QVC Marine Field today (fielding practice, running) and told reporters he has his sights set on earning his third straight opening day start.
The first three spots in the starting rotation are likely set with Naruse, Yuki Karakawa, and Shunsuke Watanabe. Pitchers like Ono, Tomohisa Otani, Hiroki Ueno, Hayden Penn, Seth Greisinger, and 1st round draft pick 1st round draft pick Takahiro Fujioka will probably compete for the remaining spots.
1st round draft pick Fujioka wants to throw 111 pitches in the bullpen on the first day of spring camp (assuming he is feeling good on the mound).
3rd round draft pick Daichi Suzuki wants to become a multi-position player like the late Takuya Kimura.
