Yesterday's practice game against the LG Twins:

Joel Guzman was the starting DH and batted 4th.  He went 2-for-3 with 3 RBI.

Kazuhiro Wada started in left and batted 5th.  He went 1-for-2.

===== 2/25 @ 7:55pm

According to Sanspo, it could take N. Donoue up to a month for a full recovery.

===== 2/25 @ 2:11pm

Naomichi Donoue suffered an injury to the area near his right collarbone and worked out under a separate training schedule yesterday.  While the team makes it a point to keep injuries under wraps, it seems that he may have a fracture in the same area as well.  For all intents and purposes, Donoue is basically considered day-to-day.

The Dragons pitchers took BP (long soft-toss BP, regular BP) today during lunchtime.  Kenichi Nakata and Daisuke Yamai were a part of the group.

Masafumi Hirai tossed situational BP today and faced 10 batters -- he gave up 4 hits (including one homer) and 3 runs.
