Athletics | Hiroyuki Nakajima not comfortable

Oakland Athletics SS Hiroyuki Nakajima has admitted that he's not nearly comfortable this spring as he was in the Japanese League. "I've been wondering and thinking," Nakajima said about his offensive game. "I'm definitely not at the comfort level I was in Japan." He thinks he'll settle down eventually, but probably not before the start of the season. Nakajima is hitting just .240 (6-for-25) with 10 strikeouts and one extra-base hit. "It looks like he's drifting a little bit," manager Bob Melvin said. "Some of the video we've seen, he's on his back leg a little more. But you know what? There are a lot of things he's dealing with right now. When you don't get off to the type of start that maybe you would like, swinging the bat, it's tough, because he wants to make a good impression right away."
