Batting Practice Bullpen Sessions
 

Monday

  • Renyel Pinto threw thirty-three pitches, including off-speed pitches, to a squatting catcher.  He also had someone calls balls and strikes to get a better fee for the strikezone. (Sanspo)

===

Kenji Otonari tossed about fifty pitches during batting practice on Monday.

===

Renyel Pinto told reporters on Monday that he tossed his bullpen session at 60-70%.

===

Sadaharu Oh saw Toru Hosokawa before general practices on Monday and said he might be able to hit twenty homers this season.

===

Kazuyuki Hoashi had originally planned to throw about fifty pitches during his bullpen session on Sunday.  He cut it short after twenty-nine pitches because he did not want to overwork himself.

FYI: there were fifteen cameras and thirty reporters in the bullpen when Hoashi tossed his session.

===

With Takahiro Mahara out for an undetermined amount of time, Brian Falkenborg will likely be tasked to close this season.
