  • Hiroshi Moriwaki is planning to assign Chihiro Kaneko (right elbow) to Ichi-gun spring camp next year because it will be easier to keep track of his progress and because he feels it will be his best option -- it might be warmer at Ni-gun camp, but the facilities at Ichi-gun camp will be better.
