The Ni-gun Marines have the day off today.

Ikuhiro Kiyota spent about an hour working on his swing before general practice today.  He also stayed back after practice for extra hitting.  During situational BP during general practice, Kiyota managed to serve a number of outside pitches to the opposite field.


Norifumi Nishimura told reporters that he didn't expect Imaoka to be gone for very long.

===== 2/10 @ 9:22pm

The Marines received the Hanshin Tigers' 28-man protected player list today.  Operating director Akira Ishikawa told reporters that there was a player (or perhaps players) they were interested in.


Makoto Imaoka returned to Tokyo today due to a re-occurrence of chronic lower back pains (not that severe).  Imaoka will get his back checked out at a hospital in Tokyo and there is currently no time line for when he'll return to camp.
