...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).
