Tsutomu Ito wants to free up short for other players and is planning to move Daichi Suzuki to second base. Suzuki has spent most of his time at short since 2013 and won Best Nines at the position in 2013 and 2016. He is open to the conversion and is ready to make second his new home.
Ito is planning to test a number of players at short, including Shogo Nakamura, Ryo Miki, Shota Omine, and most notably, Taiga Hirasawa.
