This post will be updated throughout the day.


Today's practice game against the Nippon Ham Fighters:

The Fighters beat the Carp, 10-5.

Takeru Imamura started the game and tossed two shutout innings while allowing 2 hits.  Imamura did struggle with his control over his fastball, but still managed to keep the Fighters at bay.


The media learned yesterday that Hideo Nomo was once again invited to be a special temporary pitching coach during spring camp.  He will be working with the team between 2/15 and 2/25.


Kyoshi Toyoda actually faced Chad Tracy, not Bryan Bullington, during BP yesterday.  Daily Sports had the wrong information.


Yuya Fukui (1st round) threw 21 pitches to a standing catcher in the bullpen yesterday.  It was his second session in as many days.
