...Keiichi Hirano recorded his 23rd multi-hit game last night. Matt Murton had his 35th mult-hit game.
...Seems there's a chance Tomoaki Kanemoto could be back in the starting line-up before the All-Star break. Kanemoto has shown solid progress during fielding practice and while the Tigers are being careful with him, they like what they see so far.
...Atsushi Nomi could be back on the active roster as early as the middle of August. Nomi is already back to doing some light right and has also started playing catch. The Tigers feel that either by the end of this month, or early next month, Nomi will be able to run sprints. Nomi is working his way back from a fracture in his right foot (cuneiform bone).
