Hiroshima Carp: Feburary 4, 2012

by on Feb.04, 2012 @ 11:59 pm, under NPB

Team owner Hajime Matsuda wants Kenta Maeda to watch over 1st round draft pick Yusuke Nomura.

"Mae-Ken has resolve.  I think things will go well if he can keep an eye on things.  Nomura is quiet, but he changes when he faces hitters.  [It would be help] if [Mae-Ken] can watch over [Nomura] when he goed off by himself," said Matsuda.

Incidentally, Maeda and Nomura are the only two pitchers that have yet to toss bullpen sessions since the start of spring camp.
