[7/26/2016] Tomoya Mori to get first start at catcher since 2014

Tomoya Mori is slated to get a start at catcher on July 29 against the Orix Buffaloes at Kyocera Dome. It was be his first start at catcher since October 1, 2014.

The Lions are planning to use Mori as a catcher on July 29 because they want his bat in the line-up. Takeya Nakamura has spent a lot of time as a designated hitter since mid-May and Yuji Kaneko has started getting more starts in right (and third). The Lions can have a much deeper offense if Mori can catch.
