This post will be updated throughout the day.

The Hawks have the day off today.

===

Kenji Otonari worked out on his day off today.  Otonari has been working out with at the Ni-gun camp because of a late start.

===

Hiroki Kokubo took 115 swings during extra BP yesterday and hit 32 over the fence.  He also took some extra fielding practice at first.

===

Tsuyoshi Wada could make an appearance during an exhibition game on the 26th.  There was some talk about having Wada pitch against Toshiya Sugiuchi during an intra-squad game on the 21st, but the team doesn't see a point in having the two pitch against each other if it means it taking one or both pitchers off their preparation schedules.

Wada felt some tightness in his left elbow back on the 10th and tossed his first bullpen session since then yesterday (110 pitches).
