The Buffaloes have the day off today.

===== 2/14 @ 9:53pm

Players like Ryosuke Shibata, Kei Kaneko, Daisuke Maeda, Aarom Baldiris, and Francisco Caraballo worked out at Miyakojima Stadium today.

===== 2/14 @ 4:40pm

Shuichi Furukawa worked out on his day off today.  Furukawa started feeling stiffness in his lower back during practice on the 12th and slowed things down during his workouts yesterday.  But since the tightness isn't severe, he isn't expected to miss any time.  He spent the day today doing things like using a balance ball to loosen his body and taking grounders.  Furukawa also told reporters he was feeling fine now.

Akinobu Okada plans on having Alfredo Figaro and Evan MacLane fight over one foreign player spot on the active roster.
