Daisuke Matsuzaka worked out in Ft. Myers, FL on the 10th.  He also played catch for about 25 minutes (while mixing in some off-speed pitches).

"I can start the season without any concerns about my body," said Matsuzaka.  "I don't think I've been able to say that for a while."


Junichi Tazawa (coming off right elbow surgery in April, 2010) also worked out in Ft. Myers, FL on the 10th and played catch for about 15 minutes (he had his catching partner squat).

"I'm feeling good.  But I'm still holding back a little in my head, so I need to work on that," said Tazawa.


Hisanori Takahashi started working out in Tempe, AZ on the 10th (about an hour; light training menu that included playing catch).  Takahashi first arrived in the US on 2/1 in order to find a house in Los Angeles.  During his search, he also spent some time working out at one of the local colleges.

Said Takahashi, "I'm been moving my body and I've also thrown the ball.  As of now, there are no problems."
