Seibu Lions

...Yusei Kikuchi worked out at Seibu 2 Stadium on Friday.  His 2-hour training included sprints up hills and pitching to a net.  After practice, he spent about 30 minutes interacting with fans.  When a female handed him a box of chocolates, he smirked and said that he'll get more acne.

...Kikuchi will be excused from Spring camp between 2/8 and 2/11 in order to take his finals at Hanamaki Higashi.

Softbank Hawks

...Rookie mini camp ended on Friday.
