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.
