...Takeshi Hosoyamada worked out in the morning on his day off.  He started off with some stretches and moved onto the batting cages to work on his swing.

...Stephen Randolph, Chris Bootcheck, and Ricky Barrett (tryout) worked out in the afternoon during their day off.  They spent about 2 hours playing catch and lifting weights.

...Stephen Randolph threw 59 pitches during a bullpen session on Sunday.  He threw at about 60-70%.  Randolph told reporters that he doesn't want to rush but will make sure he's ready for opening day.

...Yoshitomo Tsutsugo will be joining Ichi-gun camp on Tuesday.  Ni-gun camp is closing down at Kadena and returning to Yokosuka on the 18th.  The Bay Stars will give Tsutsugo a look at Ichi-gun camp over a three day period during the next session (16th - 18th).  Based on his performance during that period, he could end up staying at Ichi-gun camp.  Tsutsugo will also likely play in an intra-squad practice game on the 17th.

...Naoto Inada received 150 boxes of chocolates for Valentine's day -- tops on the team.
