Junichi Tazawa played catch at a distance of about 36 meters on the 12th and told reporters he threw at about 70% (with advice from the trainer).


Daisuke Matsuzaka is planning on tossing another bullpen on the 13th.


Kosuke Fukudome took off for the US out of Narita yesterday.  Before leaving, he told reporters that he wasn't going to think about his contract until the end of the season and only wanted to focus on doing whatever he could to make sure he play played well on the field.


Nikkan Sports notes that Kei Igawa's name was not included in the New York Yankees' list of 20 Spring Training invites.
