The Seibu Lions held a press conference for Shigenobu Shima at Seibu Dome today.  He was also assigned the number 42.


Takeya Nakamura has been testing a few bats of different weights (between 920 grams and 940 grams) since spring camp.  He used a 930 gram bat on Tuesday.


Yusei Kikuchi has been dropping his left elbow down and opening up too early.  And while he is getting getting extra looks at Ichi-gun because the team is concerned about Takayuki Kishi's right flank problems, there is no set timetable on when he will pitch at the Ichi-gun level again.
