Orix Buffaloes: March 2, 2010

...Kazuki Kondo threw 103 pitches in a bullpen session on Tuesday.

...Shogo Yamamoto held a bullpen session on Tuesday and threw 80 pitches.  Former Kintetsu Buffalo Yoshiaki Kanemura stood in the batter's box calling out various counts for Yamamato to pitch to.

...Daisuke Nobue was the pitcher on the mound during base-stealing practice on Tuesday.  He apparently managed to throw out a number of runners with a really good pick-off move.

...Shuichi Furukawa had his elbow checked out on Monday and was informed on Tuesday that he had bruising in his left pectoral muscle (左大胸筋筋挫傷).  Furukawa will not be allowed to throw for at least 10 days, meaning there's a chance he won't be ready for the start of the regular season.

Furukawa started feeling discomfort in his left shoulder area after pitching on 2/27 against the Hanshin Tigers (exhibition game).
