...Akihiro Higashide was held out of the line-up against the Yakult Swallows on Thursday due to tightness in his left hamstring.  He apparently felt something on Wednesday after his at bat in the 4th in a game against the Yomiuri Giants.  Chief trainer Masaya Ishii told reporters that he would have been in the starting line-up had it been during the regular season.

...It seems Ken Takahashi also told reporters on Wednesday that he could pitch about 5 innings as a starter.
