Batting Practice Bullpen Sessions


  • 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.
