...Yoshihisa Naruse threw 121 pitches on the first day and 120 pitches on the second day of Spring camp.  On Wednesday, he took things easy as he had some tightness in his muscles.  Naruse wants to throw around 400 pitches during the first session and will shoot for 150 pitches tomorrow.

...The infield and outfield took situational fielding practice on Wednesday for the first time during Spring camp.  Tadahito Iguchi and Makoto Imaoka took the field at second and third (respectively), the first time since the 1996 Olympics when they played short and second (respectively).

...Tae-Gyun Kim took 48 swings of the bat during BP on Tuesday and recorded 22 potential hits, including one over the left field fence that went against the wind.

...Imaoka took 63 swings of the bat on Tuesday and recorded 29 potential hits.  So far, Norifumi Nishimura has been impressed with Imaoka's hitting.
