Batting Practice

Wednesday

  • Dae-Ho Lee took sixty-five swings during batting practice and hit eight over the fence. (Sponichi)

The Buffaloes posted an updated player assignment list today.

===

The Buffaloes worked on their baseball signs behind closed doors for the second time in as many days today.

===

Dae-Ho Lee left practices early today after he started feeling tightness in his left buttock while running.  He is considered day-to-day.  Lee is expected back tomorrow and should be able to play in the upcoming practice games that begin on Saturday.

FWIW: Lee does not believe, does not want to believe, KBO games were being fixed.

When Akinobu Okada approached 2nd round draft pick Takuya Shimada on Thursday, Shimada was taking soft-toss batting practice with head coach Nobuhiro Takashiro.  And when Okada began giving Shimada tips on hitting, batting coaches Hirofumi Ogawa and Eiji Mizuguchi dropped in to listen.
