...Yuya Ando's start on the 16th was rained out.  Instead of pitching on the 17th, his next start will be on the 18th.

...It appears the Tigers will be working on converting Keisuke Kano into a right fielder.

...Batting coach Yutaka Wada told reporters that there were no plans of moving Tomoaki Kanemoto out of the clean-up spot.  Kanemoto is currently 12-for-68 (.176/.219/.368) with 7 extra base hits (3 HR and 4 doubles) to go along with 7 runs scored and 12 RBI.  He has also struck out 18 times.

...The Tigers will be dispatching a scout (Norifumi Yamamoto? - 山本宣史) to check out foreign players participating in the Korean Baseball Organization.
