...Teppei worked out with the starters today at the Kobushi grounds near Jingu Stadium.  He playfully told reporters that he threw a fastball that topped out in the upper 130km/h range and that he could throw cutter, slider, shuto, curve, and palm ball.

...It seems Juan Morillo was diagnosed with inflammation in his right elbow (no damage to the ligaments).  He'll have a follow-up examination in about a week.  It seems Andy Phillips will also require some time off the active roster after he tweaked his right flank during a pinch-hit at bat last night in the 7th.

...Norihiro Nakamura went 2-for-4 on Monday night and extended his hitting streak to 14 games.  Over those 14 games, Nakamura is 26-for-57 (.456) with 7 R, 2 HR, and 10 RBI.

...The Eagles were shutout for the 6th time this season last night.
