...Monday was the last day of rookie mini camp.
Takashi Ogino is still nursing an injury to the big toe on his right foot and worked on a training menu separate from the rest of the rookies, but is still hopeful that he'll be ready for Spring camp.
Shota Ohmine only took part in 3 days of mini camp and is looking forward to Spring camp.
...Yusei Kikuchi tossed a 20-pitch bullpen session (2nd consecutive in as many days) with Toru Hosokawa standing behind the plate; it was the first time Hosokawa caught Kikuchi.
Kikuchi only threw fastballs and said that he threw at about 30-40% capacity.
Hosokawa told reporters that he thought Kikuchi looked a little tired and that his mechanics were a little off.
...Koji Akiyama dropped by rookie mini camp at about 9:30am on Monday and spent about 5 and a half hours checking on his prospects.
