...Maximo Nelson worked out with the Ichi-gun roster today.

...Hirokazu Ibata was held out of the starting line-up last night.  He was also absent from pre-game practice.  It seems possible that he's having problems with his rib injury from May.  And while the Dragons make it a point not to divulge details on individual players, it's likely the reason why Ibata was taken off the active roster today.

...Kazuhiro Wada continues to swing a hot bat.  Since 5/29: 18-for-41 (.439), 6 2B, 3 HR, 9 R, 10 RBI, .452 / .805 / 1.257.
