Carlos Rosa's wife is pregnant with the couple's first child.  She is due to delivery some time next month.

The Marines will be playing four of their six intra-squad games on weekends (February 11, 12, 18, 19).  They scheduled the intra-squad games on the weekend because they know that is when most fans will be visiting the stadium.

1st round draft pick Takahiro Fujioka will likely make an intra-squad start on February 11.

===

2nd round draft pick Yuhei Nakaushiro will begin testing two types of sliders (horizontal and vertical break).

He also told reporters on Saturday that he did not want people calling him Yu-chan because there is already another pitcher in the league going by the nickname (Yuki Saito, Nippon Ham).

When special instructor Norihiro Komada was asked which player caught his eye so far during spring camp, he said Shunichi Nemoto.
