Bryan Bullington threw around 50 pitches in the bullpen today.


Fukui threw 40 pitches in the bullpen today.  He also threw his fork for the first time this spring.  Fukui isn't expected to pitch in any exhibition games until March.

Mike Schultz faced Yuichiro Mukae and Yoshihiro Maru during BP today and threw 35 pitches while allowing 3 could-be hits.


Soichiro Amaya told reporters that he's working on keeping his swing level, something he picked up when he had a chance to work out with Norichika Aoki for one day during the off-season (in January).


Nikkan Sports is carrying an interview with Yuya Fukui (1st round).  I'll try to translate it later, if I have the time.


Sports memorabilia collector and appraiser Shigeo Maeno thinks the glove Kenta Maeda used last season is worth about 800,000 yen.  Maeno once placed a price tag of 750,000 yen for a Roger Clemens NY Yankees uniform.
