...Seth Greisinger started a Ni-gun game against Seibu earlier today and gave up 3 runs on 6 hits over 4 innings of work.  He also struck out 2 batters, did not walk anyone, and threw a total 57 pitches.  The Giants liked what they saw but feel that it'll take a little longer before he's ready to rejoin the active roster.

...Tetsuya Utsumi went just 2.2 innings last night, tying a season low for number of innings pitched.  Utsumi was demoted to Ni-gun today.

...Hisayoshi Chono stole two bases last night and now has 11 on the year.  He also becomes the second player in franchise history to record double-digit homers (10) and double-digit stolen bases in their rookie season (Shigeo Nagashima hit 29 homer and stolen 37 bases in his rookie year in 1958).
