Seibu Lions: Yusei Kikuchi starts throwing into a net

Yusei Kikuchi started throwing into a net on Saturday.

Prior to throwing a couple of pitches into a net, Kikuchi spent some time practicing his delivery with some shadow pitching.  This is a solid step forward for Kikuchi since he's still not capable of playing yet.  And despite that, the Seibu Lions are currently thinking about inviting Kikuchi to their fall camp in Nango, Miyazaki so that he can work with the rest of the team.

===

Tomoki Hoshino apparently raised his arm slot a bit (perhaps about 5cm higher than before) and saw an improvement in velocity for his fastball.
