"It was a tough workout. But baseball's a lot of fun," said Yoshida. "I'm really sorry about all the fuss I've caused."
Yoshida also made an update to her personal blog prior to rejoining the team:
I'm feeling much better now...
I have returned to Kobe.
Thank you for all your comments.
Your support has helped me get through this.
I will do my best starting with tomorrow's practice.
I am truly sorry for all the fuss I have caused.
Despite that, I do hope that you will continue to root for me.
