...Toshiya Okada threw 35 pitches (all fastballs) during his first BP outing on Wednesday.  He faced two batters and gave up 5 could-be hits.  And it was because of this performance that Okada attended Ichi-gun camp on Thursday to throw a 41-pitch (all fastballs) bullpen session for Hiromitsu Ochiai and head coach Shigekazu Mori.  The bullpen was basically a tryout to see if he might be ready for Ichi-gun camp.

...Ryoji Nakata took part in a simulated game on Wednesday and flied out to right in his first AB.  He never got a chance to bat a second time.
