Takashi Saito tossed 39 pitches in the bullpen on the 18th.  It was his second bullpen since injuring his left hamstring.  Saito is expected to pitch an inning in a triple-AAA game on the 20th.


Pirates president Frank Coonelly is spreading the word that they never asked Akinori Iwamura to undergo a physical before finalizing the trade with the Rays last year.  This despite the fact that he was coming off left knee surgery.
