Hanshin Tigers

  • Atsushi Nomi recorded a winning record during the first-half of a full season just once in his career (8-4 in 2013). He did a lot of running that year and plans to work more of it into his routine in 2015 (particularly through to June). Nomi is not planning to throw the ball until the new year.

  • Tsuyoshi Nishioka wants to play second or short, but the Tigers could use him in the outfield or at third. Source: Sanspo 12/10/2014
  • The Tigers have given Shintaro Fujinami the green light to buy a car. Players drafted out of high school living in Kofuso (team dorm) generally are not allowed to own a car until after their third year, but officials made an exception for Fujinami because he is already at Ichi-gun and can benefit from having his own transportation.
