by on Mar.13, 2011 @ 6:27 pm, under NPB

Seibu Lions

Tatsuya Oishi (1st round) next start is currently up in the air (he was supposed to start a game on the 16th against Chunichi, but that was taken back after the Lions' exhibition games on the 12th and 13th were canceled).

Chiba Lotte Marines

The Marines will be playing two practice game at QVC Marine Field (not open to the public): against Nippon Ham on the 15th and an intra-squad game on the 16th.

Nippon Ham Fighters

The Fighters worked out for about 2 hours at Kamagaya today.


Yuki Saito's (1st round) next appearance could come during a Kyoiku League game on either the 15th (vs Yokohama) or 16th (vs Yakult).  Another possibility would be an exhibition game against Orix on the 16th.  Saito threw 47 pitches in the bullpen today; it was his first session since the 9th.

Orix Buffaloes

Takahiro Okada could not play in today's intra-squad game because of a fever -- he started feeling sick during practice yesterday and was taken to a hospital with a 38.4 degree Celsius fever; he tested negative for the flu.  Okada did make an appearance at the stadium, but did not take part in practices.
