...Darrell Rasner will likely start Wednesday's game against the Seibu Lions.  Rasner has not won a game since his start against the Nippon Ham Fighters on 4/23 (a span of 7 starts).  And while he went 0-2 in 5 starts during Inter-league play, he also had a 2.37 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP.

...The Eagles will be selling tickets that come packaged with limited edition BAPE designed Eagles' t-shirts.

...Randy Ruiz worked with Marty Brown on his hitting yesterday at Kleenex Stadium.  Seems Brown suggested that Ruiz focus more on using his legs when hitting.  Ruiz has only one hit since he hit a home run on 6/6.  That's a span of 25 plate appearances (and 9 strikeouts).

Teppei also worked on his hitting yesterday and checked on his balance (between his upper and lower body).  Teppei is 1-for-12 over his last three games, including a 4 strikeout day on 6/19 (vs Lotte).
