...Kenta Kurihara worked on his fielding at third base (he's being converted into a third baseman) during general practice on Tuesday and then stayed after for the second consecutive day to get some extra batting practice in.

...Ken Takahashi held a bullpen session on Tuesday and tossed 33 pitches.  It also happened to be his daughter's birthday.

...Kenjiro Nomura checked in on Takeru Imamura and Taketo Kawaguchi prior the morning walk on the second day of Spring camp on Tuesday.  Seemed he wanted to make sure the two rookies were alright after their first day of Spring camp.

...Yomiuri Giant advanced scout Shigeru Sugiyama had a chance to watch Imamura pitch on Monday and offered the following report:

He has an orthodox delivery, like Hideaki Wakui.  He's a very polished player.

...Ken Takahashi didn't throw a bullpen session on Monday but likely will at some point over the next few days.

...Justin Huber took 80 swings of the bat on Monday and hit 4 over the fence; Jeff Fiorentino took 47 swings and didn't hit any over the fence.
