Kei Nomoto took things a little slow during practice today due to fasciitis in his right calf.  There are no plans to send Nomoto to a hospital at this stage but he will spend time away from Ichi-gun.


Hitoki Iwase will likely get to start an exhibition game against Hiroshima on March 2.


1st round draft pick Shuhei Takahashi spent some time signing autographs after practices on Thursday.


Through Thursday, 1st round draft pick Takahashi is 7-for-24 with five extra base hits and four RBI over seven games.
