...The Tigers unveiled retro 1985 uniforms that they'll be using during inter-league play this season.


...Scott McClain was formally introduced at a press conference today.


...Masahiro Tanaka appears to be ok (he said that there was no pain). At this point, it seems like the team just wanted to skip one of his starts as a precaution.

Of course, what would this update be, without a short quote from Nomura on Tanaka being shut-down:
We already have no pitching... Would everyone just please go ahead and put me out of my misery.


...The Swallows finished the month of April with a 12-10 record. It was the first time in 6 years they finished April with a winning record.

...Tatsuyoshi Masabuchi underwent surgery on his fractured lower jaw. There is currently no timetable on when he'll be back..
