Yesterday's intra-squad game:

Juan DeLeon entered the game in the 6th and did not allow a run over 2 innings of work.  He faced a total 6 batters, did not allow a hit, walked 1, and struck out 1.

===== 2/22 @ 10:39pm

Cabrera told reporters that he was at 75-80%.  For now, it seems there's a chance he could get the start as a DH in an exhibition game against the Hiroshima Carp (at Yahoo Dome) on the 26th.

===== 2/22 @ 8:30pm

Kenta Imamiya stayed back for about 2 hours of extra BP today.

The Hawks and the team players group announce today that they were going to donate 3M yen to Miyazaki Prefecture and Miyazaki City for volcano and bird flu relief efforts (1.5M yen to each).

===== 2/22 @ 2:57pm

Alex Cabrera took 40 swings during BP today and hit 4 over the fence (including three consecutively).  It was the first time Cabrera took BP outdoors since he started feeling tightness in his lower back on the 11th.
