Atsushi Nomi tossed a simulated game yesterday for the first time since suffering a cuneiform fracture dislocation in his right foot -- he faced two batters and tossed 52 pitches.  Nomi also did some base-running to check on his lower body.  Trainer Yasunori Gonda told reporters that Nomi should be able to make his first rehab start at Ni-gun soon (based on current progress).
