Today's intra-squad game:

Hayato Terahara was a starter and gave up 2 runs on 5 hits over 2 innings of work.

===== 2/17 @ 10:02pm

Akinobu Okada told reporters today that he saw a lot of improvement in players like Yuki Nishi and Keiji Obiki.  He also said that he liked what he saw in Shunta Goto (1st round) so far and that he had high hopes for him.

===== 2/17 @ 3:17pm

Alfredo Figaro hurt his right hamstring during practice (while running dashes) yesterday and ended his day early.  He was not taken to the hospital and had the area iced down.

The Buffaloes were hoping for a chance to see Figaro pitch during an intra-squad game today, but will now have to wait a bit longer before that can happen.  At this point, the Buffaloes are hoping it isn't a serious injury.
