Kiyoshi Nakahata is planning to use Nyjer Morgan extensively during spring camp games so that he can get a better feel for what kind of player he is.

Morgan's response: "Of course, I plan to play in ever game.  I am not into studying footage of players anyway.  I am more about playing games.  I will stand in the batter's box and hit the pitches that come to me."

    Morgan’s response: “Of course, I plan to play in ever game. I am not into studying footage of players anyway. I am more about playing games. I will stand in the batter’s box and hit the pitches that come to me.”
