Yoshitomo Tsutsugo did not play in today's practice game against the Rakuten Eagles and will most likely not be allowed to play in tomorrow's practice game either. The contusion he suffered on his left ankle on Friday was the reason.
"[Tsutsugo got hit in] a bad place. It is a little worse than a contusion. It might take some time. He says he wants to play tomorrow, but we will not let him," said Nakahata.
Oscar Salazar told reporters on Friday he loves to salsa and would like to do a little dance for the fans after he hits home runs. It is possible fans might also get a chance to see Alex Ramirez, Nakahata, and Salazar dancing together in front of the camera.
