Marc Kroon felt some discomfort in his left hamstring during an outing on the 21st (vs Yakult at Tokyo Dome).  On Saturday, Kroon joined up with the team at Giants Stadium for practice and had a chance to check his left hamstring with a bullpen session.

Kroon told reporters that while he did feel some pain in his hamstring, it wasn't severe enough to affect his pitching.  He also said that he should be ready to pitch when the second-half of the season begins on the 27th.
