Igarashi was also quoted as saying that while he was impressed with the atmosphere at Yankee Stadium, he felt it couldn't beat Koshien Stadium.
Kazuo Matsui went 1-for-4 with a strikeout and a GIDP against the triple-A Las Vegas 51s on the 19th. He started at second and batted second.
Sponichi also mentions that Matsui might have a chance to make the MLB roster with the injury to Troy Tulowitzki (broken wrist, 6-8 weeks).
It seems Daisuke Matsuzaka has been given the green light to pitch on the 24th against the Rockies. On the 19th, Matsuzaka also tossed a 3 inning simulated game against three batters from an Independent League team. He faced 14 batters and threw a total 47 pitches and struck out 3.
