...Takeshi Komatsu threw 102 pitches during a bullpen session on Sunday.  Komatsu has managed to throw a bullpen session everyday (outside of his days off).  In all, he's probably thrown about 700 pitches so far.

...Hideo Nomo began asserting himself more on Sunday after spending most of his time studying players on Saturday.  He hung around the bullpen areas, watching pitchers throw.  He also watched Hideki Kishimoto throw 102 pitches during a bullpen session.

Nomo also watched Takeru Imamura throw a bullpen session and felt that he was ready for Ichi-gun.

...Kenta Maeda will try to fill the shoes of the staff ace this season.  On Saturday, Maeda threw 60 pitches during his bullpen session.  Maeda is currently working at his own pace and is trying not to get caught up in throwing more than 100 pitches.

...Katsuhiro Nagakawa threw about 80 pitches during his bullpen session on Saturday.  After his session, Hideo Nomo approached Nagakawa and told him to try changing the position of his glove hand a little during his delivery the next time he throws a bullpen session.  Nagakawa apparently didn't ask him why at the time and plans on trying it out first before asking.

...Seems Nomo was a fairly big hit on his first day as temporary coach during Spring camp.

...Justin Huber and Jeff Fiorentino will likely play in an intra-squad game on the 11th.

...Prior to getting tips on how to throw a fork, Keisuke Imai threw 70 pitches during his bullpen session on Saturday.
