This post will be updated throughout the day.

The Ichi-gun roster has the day off today.

===

Yoshinori Sato worked on his day off today in order to stay loose for his scheduled start against the Hanwha Eagles tomorrow.

===

The Swallows' decided to give Masanori Ishikawa the opening day start.  This will be Ishikawa's fourth consecutive opening day start.  Hiromu Matsuoka holds the club record of 7 straight opening day starts (1971 - 1977).

===

Yuki Shichijo (2nd round) next appearance as a reliever will likely be against the Yomiuri Giants on the 27th.  Assuming no road bumps, his next appearance after that will probably be as a starter.
