Ichiro Suzuki began his training at Skymark Stadium on Tuesday.  He checked in after 11am and started with some warm-up exercises.  He then moved on to playing catch from a distance of about 80 meters.  In the afternoon, he took about 121 cuts with the bat and hit 31 over the fence.

The Angels may be the last team Hideki Matsui plays for.  Or at least that's the way he plans on approaching his new start.

Daisuke Matsuzaka arrived in Arizona on Monday.  He's looking to hold a bullpen session by mid-January.

Akinori Iwamura might end up being able to finish his 88 temple pilgrimage later today.  He managed to visit his 70th temple on Tuesday (he visited 12 in all).
