...The Lions announced on Saturday that Alex Graman will be arriving in Japan on March 1st.

...Yusei Kikuchi threw 86 pitches in the bullpen on the last day of Spring camp on Friday.  Kikuchi will be with the Ichi-gun team over the weekend to watch them play the Yomiuri Giants.  He will likely return to Tokyo on the 28th, attend a rookie seminar on 3/2, and then remain in Saitama to join the Ni-gun team.

Kikuchi will also likely take part in some serious training in March at Ni-gun, including 1,000 sit-ups a day to strengthen the trunk muscles.  The media is calling it hell training.

...Takeya Nakamura arrived at camp on Friday with a fairly bad cut on the left side of his nose.  He told reporters that other than not being able to wash his face (and some puffiness), he was feeling great.
