...The Fighters announced today that Toshiyuki Yanuki will not be participating in the 2010 Fresh All-Star game due to an injury.  Akiyoshi Toyoshima will take Yanuki's spot on the roster.

...Sho Nakata was added to the active roster yesterday and went 1-for-4: ground out to third, strikeout swinging, fly out to short, single to center.  He was the starting DH and batted seventh.  Nakata had surgery on his left knee on 5/10 and appears to have made a fairly quick recovery.

...Could be nothing but a coincidence, but the Fighters are 1-4 since taking Hichori Morimoto off the active roster on the 15th.
