The Orix Buffaloes and Yokohama Bay Stars announced today that they agreed on a two-for-two player trade. Orix will send twenty-nine-year-old catcher Hikaru Ito and twenty-seven-year-old pitcher Ken Akama to Yokohama for twenty-seven-year-old catcher Shuto Takajo and twenty-five-year-old infielder Hiroyuki Shirasaki.
The Buffaloes also released uniform numbers for their newest additions: Takajo number 22 and Shirasaki number 2.One Comment
Ken Akama’s intra-squad outing today was canceled due to tightness in his right shoulder. He will not do any throwing for three days. He is scheduled to report to Ni-gun camp on February 14.
