Tsuyoshi Nishioka took off for the US today out of Narita airpot.  He plans on heading out to Fort Myers on the 5th to continue his training until the start of spring training on the 23rd.


Hisanori Takahashi closed out his training in Yokohama on Tuesday with a 36-pitch bullpen session (24 to a standing catcher and 12 to a squatting catcher) and took off for Arizona.


Hideki Matsui visited Komatsu on Tuesday.  Komatsu has been buying billboard ad space at the stadiums Matsui has been playing in, since his time with the Yankees.  Matsui is also under contract (as a spokesperson) with Komatsu (since 2003).
