...Masanori Ishikawa's next start will likely be on the 21st against the Chunichi Dragons at Nagoya Dome.  Ishikawa is still looking for his first win and is currently 0-4 in four starts.

...The Swallows will be hosting Norichika Aoki Day at Jingu Stadium on 5/1 (vs Yokohama Bay Stars).  As part of the festivities, the first 10,000 fans will receive an Aoki-themed item.  And speaking of Aoki, he spent time working on his hitting on his day off on Monday, even getting a few chances to hit with Shigeru Takada on the mound.
