...As mentioned earlier, Takashi Ogino began running today.  He spent about 20 minutes slow running (jogging) from foul pole to foul pole and then spent about an hour and a half doing other things like playing catch.

...Yuki Karakawa could pitch in a Ni-gun game against Nippon Ham on the 29th.  Karakawa has gotten to the point where he can toss bullpen sessions with the catcher squatting and pitching in a real game will be his next step.

Takashi Ogino is also expected to begin running today.

...Toshiaki Imae had an MRI on his right shoulder and was diagnosed with inflammation due to fatigue.  The inflammation isn't serious and Imae should be able to return to practice once it goes away.
