Chunichi Dragons: June 15, 2010

by on Jun.15, 2010 @ 7:52 pm, under NPB

...Kazuki Yoshimi was / is scheduled to join the Ichi-gun roster for practice today.  Yoshimi played some catch and ran some sprints at Nagoya Stadium yesterday.  On the 12th, he started a Ni-gun game against Orix and tossed 2 shutout innings.  Yoshimi could be starting an Ichi-gun game on the 18th against Yomiuri.

...The Dragons could turn to Naomichi Donoue to step in for Hirokazu Ibata.  8 Chunichi coaches watched over Donoue during BP (about 10 minutes) and fielding practice at second base (about 30 minutes) yesterday.  He was / is also scheduled to join Ichi-gun practice today for a final ruling on his status.

...Masahiro Yamamoto injured his left foot during a Ni-gun outing against Orix on Sunday and re-started rehab training again yesterday.  His workouts last about 4 hours and likely included treatment and weight training exercises.

...Tickets to tomorrow's Dragons game at Nagoya Dome (make-up game vs Nippon Ham Fighters) apparently are not selling very well.
