...Tetsuya Yamaguchi threw 106 pitches during a bullpen session on Thursday.

...Marc Kroon played some catch at a distance of about 20 meters on Thursday.  He threw about 20 pitches.  Kroon is currently working out under a different menu from the rest of the team as he makes his way back from right elbow surgery.

...Takahiro Suzuki spent about 2 hours on his day off playing some catch and hitting soft toss.  Suzuki also wore a mouthguard during batting practice to see if it might help him swing with more power.

...Wirfin Obispo had been resting his left ankle after he sprained it on the 7th.  On his day off, he tried playing some catch in the morning.  Obispo later attended Michihiro Ogasawara's BBQ and told reporters that his ankle was feeling fine.

...Speaking of the BBQ, Ogaswara had served up about 10kg of meat, specially prepared by a restaurant in Hiroshima called Chiyo (知代).

...Tetsuya Utsumi filed his taxes using the electronic filing system, e-Tax, on his day off.
