Batting Practice


  • 7th round draft pick Takumi Oshima took forty-two swings during batting practice and collected twelve could-be hits; none went over the fence. (Sponichi)


7th round draft pick Takumi Oshima caught four bullpen sessions on Tuesday (a total 194 pitches), including Yuki Saito (sixty-four pitches) and Masaru Takeda.

The home plate ump standing behind Oshima during parts of the bullpen sessions asked the twenty-two year old to get down lower because he was having a hard time seeing home plate.


Two catchers caught Yuki Saito's bullpen session on Tuesday: 7th round draft pick Oshima and Shota Ono.


5th round draft pick Toshiharu Moriuchi will likely pitch an inning in relief in a practice game against the Yakult Swallows on Thursday.
