...Depending on how his right ankle feels, Masahiro Tanaka will likely throw his first bullpen session some time during the second session.  Tanaka's workout on Wednesday included long throws and taking grounders.

...Kazuya Takahori ran the 2-mile in 12 minutes.  Tanaka finished with a time of 16m 20s and Hisashi Iwakuma 16m 50s.  Takeshi Yamasaki came in last place and ended his run run by sliding across a blue sheet covered with rain water.  A total 66 players from Ichi-gun and Ni-gun participated.
