Hiroki Kuroda threw 25 pitches during a bullpen session on the 21st.  Kuroda has also been working on pitching out of the stretch.

Kenshin Kawakami took some BP on the 21st against Tim Hudson.  Kawakami was 4-for-41 at the plate last season.

===

Hideki Matsui worked out for about 3 hours on the 21st.  The rain on Sunday force Matsui to take his training indoors where he worked did some weight training.  Matsui is scheduled for a physical examination on Monday.

===

Akinori Iwamura took some outdoor BP and fielding practice on the 21st.

Hideki Okajima is working on polishing his change.  It seems Okajima feels that MLB hitters have adjusted to his change and that it's now his turn to make adjustments (arm slot, release point, velocity).
