Yakult Swallows: February 23, 2012

by on Feb.23, 2012 @ 11:59 pm, under NPB

The Ni-gun Swallows have the day off tomorrow.


Today's practice game against Fujii Juko (Industrial League) was canceled due to rain.


The team still has no timetable on when Kyohei Muranaka will pitch in a game.  Muranaka complained of tightness in his body during the previous block of spring camp and has been taking things slow since.

Muranaka did tell reporters on Wednesday that he planned to toss a bullpen session soon and that he was feeling ok.  Junji Ogawa was in no real rush and simply said he would be ok so long as Muranaka pitched in a game sometime during Urasoe camp.


Through Wednesday, Tetsuto Yamada is 9-for-27 with six RBI over seven games.
