Hiroshima Carp: January 28, 2012

by on Jan.28, 2012 @ 11:59 pm, under NPB

1st round draft pick Yusuke Nomura threw 30 pitches in the bullpen (standing catcher) at the Ono training facilities today.


Kenta Maeda twisted his left leg while running on Friday -- he did not go to the hospital and just had the leg taped and iced.


Kenjiro Nomura does not mind if Nick Stavinoha hits for a low average so long as he also hits for power.  For now, it seems he could bat fifth.  As for Kam Mickolio, he will probably be used as a set-up man.

Regarding their registered names, the team is thinking about "Nick" and "Kam" to make it easier for fans to remember.
