7/22 It's just lunch

Cubs hitting coach Von Joshua said he learned a lot from his lunch with Kosuke Fukudome’s hitting coach, Kyosuke Sasaki. The two talked hitting on Tuesday, and Sasaki planned on giving Joshua and the Cubs a check list of things to watch for regarding Fukudome’s swing. Japanese pitchers throw more offspeed pitches than those in the U.S. Major Leagues, and that’s been an adjustment. Sasaki, who has been in uniform, wearing No. 53, since joining the team Monday in Philly, planned on accompanying the Cubs to Chicago.
