Junji Ogawa told reporters on Saturday that he was hoping both Chang-Yong Lim and Jamie D'Antona would be back for the 2011 season.

On D'Antona: If we have Josh Whitesell, we can platoon the two of them.  He might be averse to that, but if we speak to him about it up front, he might be willing to return.

On Lim: Some of the growth that Kyohei Muranaka and Yoshinori Sato have seen can be attribute to Lim.  If he returns, we can go with 5 starters, if he doesn't, we'll definitely need 6.
