Robert Zarate started working out at Naruohama on Sunday.  He threw 18 pitches in the outfield with a standing catcher, while also mixing in his fork, slider, and change.  Nikkan Sports also makes mention of a cutter, sinker, and shuto.  Nikkan Sports also mentions that Zarate threw 4 of 18 pitchers with a side-arm delivery.


The club announced on Sunday that Naohisa Sugiyama had surgery on his right elbow on the 29th and that he was released from the hospital on the 30th and will rehab the elbow at Naruohama.


The Tigers arrived in Aki, Kochi on Sunday for fall camp.  Seems they also brought the mannequin donning a Yomiuri Giants uniform to use in the bullpen during fall camp.
