...Akinobu Okada told reporters that So Taguchi was making good progress on his recovery from a torn hamstring.  When asked if it might be possible for Taguchi to return in time for Inter-league play, Okada said that he probably would not be ready and that there was no need for Taguchi to rush his return since there's still more than 100 games left on the schedule.
