According to Sports Hochi, the Yokohama Bay Stars and Nippon Ham Fighters have agreed on a trade that will see Atsushi Kita (23) head to Sapporo for Kenji Tsuchiya (22).

The Bay Stars see Tsuchiya as a possible left-handed arm for the starting rotation.  The Fighters like Kita's hitting potential and they feel a change of scenery might do him some good.
