Bullpen Sessions / Batting Practice

While Kenichi Nakata topped out at 149km/h during his outing against the Hiroshima Carp on Sunday, his velocity dropped about 10km/h the moment runners got on base.

"I could not get my timing down from the set position.  And I was throwing from the side," said Nakata.

Nakata spent some time in the bullpen, after his outing, making adjustments to his mechanics.
