Kai-Wen Cheng will get today's start against the Orix Buffaloes.


Kenji Jojima started doing base-running exercises during practice yesterday (first time since the surgery).  Jojima told reporters afterward that the next step will be to do sprints while wearing cleats.


After outdoor BP yesterday, Tomoaki Kanemoto went to Aki Dome to play catch with the trainer (max distance of about 30 meters).  He won't be with the club again today and will continue his rehab training in Aki.
