Nippon Ham Fighters: April 2, 2012

by on Apr.02, 2012 @ 11:40 pm, under NPB

Yu Darvish wants to see Yuki Saito record seven to ten complete games and toss between 170 and 190 innings.

===

Mitsuo Yoshikawa started Sunday's game against the Seibu Lions and took the loss.  He has not won a game since May 1, 2008; a span of twenty-one games in which he is 0-12.

===

The Fighters might try turning to Yu Darvish for his thoughts on US players once he gets settled down in the US.  The organization currently has two US-based scouts in Matt Winters and Al Hargesheimer.  The addition of Darvish would give the team a more hands-on perspective.

===

Had the Fighters won their game on Sunday, it would have given them three straight victories to start the season.  That would have been a first for the team since 1962.
