Hanshin Tigers' fall camp ended today. 14 pitchers and 12 position players took part in the camp.  Akinobu Mayumi appeared satisfied with the results and said, "I think we practiced enough.  The coaches were able to talk to and watch each player."  Mayumi also said that he was interested in seeing how much players developed during the months of December and January.


The Tigers announced earlier today that both Kodai Sakurai and Shunsuke Ishikawa had surgeries on their right elbows on Tuesday.  Both players were discharged from the hospital today and are expected to begin their rehab workouts at Naruohama on the 19th.


Kosuke Kato appears to have passed his tryout with the team.
