Tsuyoshi Nishioka worked out for about 3 hours on Friday.  Nishioka also told reporters that won't be making any changes to his equipment (like his bat and glove).


Via Nikkan Sports: According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien, the Braves are still looking to move Kenshin Kawakami.  A snip:

Wren continues looking for the right trade proposal for starting pitcher Kenshin Kawakami, who is owed $6.7 million in the final year of his contract and does not have a spot in the Braves’ rotation plans. Wren said that two or three major league teams have offered to pay more than$2 million of what Kawakami is owed, but the Braves are not willing to trade him just to dump whatever part of his salary they can.


Seems Junichi Tazawa rested for only about a week this winter.


Hideki Okajima returned to Japan on Friday and already held a 3-hour training session today.
