...Jason Standridge worked out at Naruohama on his day off on Monday.  He played catch at distances of about 40 meters and then threw 13 pitches in the bullpen (to a squatting catcher).  Standridge's next Ni-gun outing will likely be on the 21st against Orix.

...10-9-0 (2nd place): The Tigers took a three game series against the Yomiuri Giants (2-1) and ended up tying a two game series (the first game was rained out) with the Yokohama Bay Stars.  They had a big game against the Giants on the 13th, banging out 5 home runs in one game.  But the biggest news to come out of the Tigers' camp was most definitely the end of Tomoaki Kanemoto's "playing in every inning of every game" streak on Sunday.

...Takahiro Arai had a solid week (5 games), going 8-for-20 (.400) with 2 HR and 4 RBIs.

...Craig Brazell's home run on Sunday carried an estimated 150m (492ft) - Youtube.
