Bullpen Sessions / Batting Practice


  • 1st round draft pick Takahiro Fujioka threw eighty pitches in the bullpen.  This was Fujioka's second session in as many days. (Daily Sports)
  • Yoshihisa Naruse threw 153 pitches in the bullpen. (Daily Sports)


Yoshihisa Naruse threw over 200 pitches today -- that including warm-up pitches, tossing two innings during an intra-squad game, and a post-game bullpen session.


Yuki Karakawa did not pitch pitch in today's intra-squad game because of some tightness in his back.  Said Karakawa, "If I was a rookie, I may have pitched [through it].  I do not think it is anything serious and there is no need for me to force myself right now."
