...Tomohiro Nioka is making his way back from a right hamstring injury and joined the team for practice today.  Seems the team doesn't want to rush and will give him a little more time before adding him back to the active roster.

...Mitsuo Yoshikawa gave up 4 runs (all earned) on 9 hits over 6 innings of work last night.  Seems that wasn't good enough to keep him on the active roster as he was later informed of his demotion to Ni-gun.

...The Fighters posted a list of limited edition KamaSuta Festival 2010 (鎌スタ☆祭2010) merchandise they'll be selling.

...Anna Tsuchiya will be making an appearance at Sapporo Dome on 7/19 -- she'll sing her au commercial song, Hey You, and then throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
