Sponichi reports that they will offer Kazuhiko Ishimine a job as batting coach. Ni-gun battery coach Kazuhiko Yamashita will also be promoted to Ichi-gun. The Bay Stars are also hoping they will be ready to make some sort of official announcement in two to three days.
Sanspo mentions that the Bay Stars are waiting on a reply from Ichi-gun pitching coach candidate Denney Tomori. Assuming everything goes according to plan, Yokohama will have two pitching coaches (Tomori and Atsushi Kizuka) and two batting coaches (Ishimine and Hitoshi Nakane).
