Tae-Kyun Kim hit a homer out to right off Yasutaka Hattori during situational BP today.

===== 2/12 @ 10:34pm

Yuta Omine faced 7 batters and gave up 3 hits and 2 walks during situational BP today.  Omine also threw 52 pitches in the bullpen after his BP outing.  Seems Omine is having a hard time throwing the ball hard for strikes and finding his rhythm.

The Marines sent chief of team development Kenji Morozumi to scout the Tigers at Ginoza, Okinawa today.  Morozumi told reporters that today was just about exchanging introductions and that he still couldn't place names to faces yet.

Yoshihisa Naruse threw 215 pitches in the bullpen today.  This was the second time this spring that Naruse tossed 200+ pitches in one day (he threw 234 on 2/7).
