...Norifumi Nishimura told reporters that he's now thinking of using Bryan Corey in the rotation (as a the number 6 starter), instead of out of the bullpen.

...Additional note from Thursday's practice game against the Nippon Ham Fighters:

Tetsuya Uchi was the fourth pitcher on record.  He gave up 3 runs on 4 hits, 2 walks, and three strike outs over 2 innings of work.  Uchi struck out the side in the 9th.

Takashi Ogino went 1-for-3 with a infield single in the 9th.

Corey tossed was the second pitcher on record.  He tossed two shutout innings.
