Hanshin Tigers: June 1, 2010

by on Jun.01, 2010 @ 4:19 pm, under NPB

...Jason Standridge will likely start today's game against the Hanshin Tigers.  Standridge gave up 5 runs (4 earned) over 4 innings during his start against the Eagles on 5/16.  Casey Fossum is expected to get tomorrow's start.

...The Tigers held full squad workouts at Kleenex Stadium yesterday.

Shunsuke Fujikawa worked on his bunting (he failed on a bunt attempt during Sunday's game against the Nippon Ham Fighters).

Tomoaki Kanemoto took some BP and played some catch with Takahiro Arai.  After a massage session, Kanemoto played some more catch with a trainer.

Craig Brazell will be playing his first game at Kleenex Stadium since 10/4/2008 (when he was with the Seibu Lions).

With Takashi Toritani not quite at 100%, Yamato took some grounders at second during fielding practice.

Speaking of Toritani, he is scheduled to return to the starting line-up today and bat lead-off (instead of the number 3 hole).
