...Daisuke Yamai threw about 40 pitches in a bullpen session on Wednesday.  He plans on throwing another bullpen tomorrow, the last day Spring camp.

...Masahiro Yamamoto was scheduled to throw a bullpen on Tuesday, but canceled.  It seems he's feeling some tightness in his left shoulder.  He also limited his long throwing program on Tuesday as well.

...Additional notes from Tuesday's practice game against the Rakuten Eagles:

Hitoki Iwase gave up just one walk during his scoreless inning of relief.  His fastball sat in the 140km/h range.

Yohei Ohshima started in right and batted 7th.  He went 2-for-4 (including a triple off Masahiro Tanaka in the 2nd) with an RBI.  He also threw a runner out at home plate in the 8th.

Yusuke Matsui also collected 2 hits.
