...Naoto Watanabe was held out of the starting line-up last night due to left shoulder pain.  Watanabe apparently hurt his shoulder on defense in the 3rd inning during Tuesday night's game.  Watanabe told reporters that he thought he'd be able to play today.  The team will take a wait-and-see approach before making any final decisions.

...Kenta Satake picked up a screwball during the off-season to use against right-handed hitters.  He apparently used that very pitch last night to strikeout Hidenori Tanoue in the 7th inning.
