...Shun Yamaguchi threw 157 pitches during a bullpen session on Sunday.  On Saturday, he threw about 150.  He told reporters that he's trying to learn how to throw even though he's feeling a little tired.  It's all part of his plan to improve his stamina in preparation of becoming a starter this season.

...Hayato Terahara continued to work under a separate menu on Sunday due to inflammation in his right hamstring.  His training consisted mostly of weight training.  He did also play some light catch.
