Michihiro Ogasawara worked out at Giants Stadium today.  Together with Kazunari Sanematsu, Ogasawara did some running, played some catch, and took some fielding practice.  Ogasawara did not swing the bat.  Ogasawara also told reporters he'd like to use his 2,000-hit milestone (he's just 11 hits away) as a springboard to winning a championship.


Yoshinobu Takahashi flew out to Okinawa on Sunday to begin his training.  Takahashi's first day of training in Okinawa today began at 9:50am, lasted about 4.5 hours, and included running, playing catch, taking grounders in the infield, some BP.


Tomoya Inzen took some BP for the first time this year during his workout session today in Okinawa and hit two balls over the fence.  He's currently working out with Takahashi.
