Batting Practice

The Buffaloes posted an updated player assignment list today.


The Buffaloes worked on their baseball signs behind closed doors for the second time in as many days today.


Dae-Ho Lee left practices early today after he started feeling tightness in his left buttock while running.  He is considered day-to-day.  Lee is expected back tomorrow and should be able to play in the upcoming practice games that begin on Saturday.

FWIW: Lee does not believe, does not want to believe, KBO games were being fixed.


When Akinobu Okada approached 2nd round draft pick Takuya Shimada on Thursday, Shimada was taking soft-toss batting practice with head coach Nobuhiro Takashiro.  And when Okada began giving Shimada tips on hitting, batting coaches Hirofumi Ogawa and Eiji Mizuguchi dropped in to listen.
