...Kenta Maeda threw 101 pitches (including his curve and slider) in a bullpen session on Thursday.

...Yuki Saito threw about 1,400 pitches during Spring camp.

...Ken Takahashi appears to have aggravated an old injury in his left calf sometime at the end of January.  While he did admit to reporters that the area as bothering him, he also said that he wasn't concerned and still had his mind set on being ready for the start of the regular season.  He held his second straight bullpen session in as many days on Wednesday and threw 44 pitches.

...Kenjiro Nomura wants his players to have more faith in themselves -- he doesn't want his team to go into games thinking that they'll lose or fearing their opponents.  The team will begin their exhibition game season with 2 games against the Softbank Hawks and will likely face Tsuyoshi Wada and Toshiya Sugiuchi.

...Jeff Fiorentino is 7-for-18.  Fiorentino apparently takes a lot of pride in getting on base.  He's also big on BB / K ratios.
