Hideki Okajima was placed on the 15-day DL on the 6th with a strained right hamstring.  Okajima apparently felt some discomfort in his hamstring after his outing on the 5th.

Akinori Iwamura started working out with the team again on the 5th (played some catch, took some fielding / batting practice, and ran the bases) and could be ready to start playing again as early at the 7th.

Ryota Igarashi tossed a scoreless 9th against the triple-A Columbus Clippers on the 6th and earned his second victory with the Buffaloes.  Igarashi is now 2-1.  Final line: 18 (10) NP (S), 4 BF, 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 SO, 0 HR.

Mac Suzuki apparently signed a deal with the Calgary Vipers of the Golden Baseball League.
