Bullpen Sessions / Batting Practice

Monday

  • Yoshinori Sato faced Ryoji Aikawa, Yasushi Iihara, Masayoshi Miwa, and Yuhei Takai during batting practice. (Sanspo)

===

The Ichi-gun Swallows had the day of today.

===

Kazuki Fukuchi worked out at Urasoe Stadium today and is set to fully rejoin the Ichi-gun Swallows tomorrow.

===

Orlando Roman did some workouts (weight training) on his day off today.  Roman has worked out on every off day so far during spring camp.

===

Through Monday, Tsuyoshi Ueda is 10-for-21 with five stolen bases over five practice games.

===

Yoshinori Sato is scheduled to pitch in a practice game against KIA on February 27.

Atsuya Furuta observed Urasoe camp on Monday and said the following about Yoshinori:

  • he is on the right track with the adjustments he is making to his delivery
  • he needs to use off-speed pitches more effectively; even Yu Darvish does not throw every pitch at 100%
  • wants to see him pitch a full season

Furuta was responsible for drawing the winning ticket during the 2007 player draft (five teams selected him in the first round).
