Ryuma Kidokoro added catcher practices to his workouts on May 18. The Softbank Hawks switched to two catchers on the active roster on May 12. Kimiyasu Kudo asked Kidokoro during a Nippon Ham game on May 17 if he could catch in an emergency. The outfield did a little catching when he was in elementary/junior high school.
