...Kyuji Fujikawa is scheduled to start the game against the Orix Buffaloes (exhibition game) on Sunday.  He'll toss one inning.  This will be his first start (exhibition and regular season) since 9/19/2003 (vs Yomiuri Giants).

...Atsushi Noumi threw 311 pitches over two days -- 157 on Friday and 154 on Thursday.

...Yuya Ando graded his Spring camp a perfect 100%.

...Minoru Iwata threw 20 pitches to a standing catcher on Friday.  It was his second consecutive day of throwing to a standing catcher.  Iwata is hoping to throw to a squatting catcher at some point in the near future.

...Matt Murton is hoping to play in every exhibition game on the schedule.

...Shinjiro Hiyama last day of Spring camp included taking BP, fielding grounders, and playing catch.  He told reporters that he was feeling great.
