...Hirokazu Ibata was held out of the starting line-up on Tuesday and subsequently removed from the active roster on Wednesday.  While no reasons were given, it would seem as though it might have something to do with getting hit by a pitch during a game on 5/1 against the Hiroshima Carp.

...Masahiko Morino is having a nice start to the month of May.  He's 11-for-20 (.550) with 6 runs and 5 RBI.  Morino has 15 multi-hit games, including 9 games of 3+ hits.  He also had a string of six consecutive hits between Monday and Tuesday.

...Kazuhiro Wada has also gotten off to a great May: 9-for-21 (.429) with 8 runs, 9 RBI, and 5 HR.  He has 16 multi-hit games.
