Yoshinobu Takahashi did some running and played some catch during pre-game practice today. He did not take any BP. Takahashi suffered a contusion on his left flank when he crashed into a wall while trying to catch a fly ball in yesterday's game against the Yaukult Swallows.
The Carp announced that battery coach Yukihiro Ueda was diagnosed with a contusion in his right inner ear. Ueda will be given 2-3 days off to recover and San-gun general coach Katsumi Mizumoto will temporarily take over Ueda's day-to-day duties.
