Rakuten Eagles

  • Ni-gun manager Tsutomu Sakai would like first round draft pick Tomohiro Anraku to take a step back from tossing bullpen sessions and work on other areas, like strength and conditioning. He also wants to give the youngster time to rest his shoulder and elbow and think about ways to improve his approach by watching other players.
