Yu Darvish began his 2-week training session in Miyazaki on Saturday.


Ryo Sakakibara worked out at his Alma mater (Kansai Kokusai University) on Saturday.  His goal for the 2011 season: 50 games and an ERA in the 2s.


Dai-Kang Yang (Yoh) worked out at Kamagaya on Saturday.  Yang (Yoh) recently had a chance to watch Andre Agassi play some tennis in Taiwan and was impressed at how well he moved to the sides.  In an effort to capture some side-to-side footwork goodness, Yang (Yoh) spent parts of his winter in Taiwan working out with Yen-Hsun Lu's (Twaian's top tennis player) trainers.
