...Matt Murton recorded his 17th multi-hit game on Thursday night.
...Atsushi Nomi threw 30 pitches into a net on Thursday. He told reporters that he was making progress and that he was continuing to get treatment (massages) for his right foot. The club is hoping that he'll be able to make a return some time in August.
...Tomoaki Kanemoto played catch outdoors, before yesterday's game, for the first time since taking himself out of the line-up with right shoulder pains. He threw about 30 balls at a distance of about 20 meters (he was apparently throwing with a little more authority).
