Dae-Ho Lee spent some time signing about 100 autographs after practices today.

Yoshihisa Hirano cut his bullpen short today because of a blister on his right middle finger.

Mamoru Kishida also cut his practices short today because of tightness in his lower back.  He did not go to the hospital and instead returned to the player hotel to rest.  Kishida is essentially considered day-to-day.

Keiji Obiki worked on turning double plays as a second baseman during fielding practice today and also received some tips from Akinobu Okada.

Cha-Seung Baek is actually working through some right elbow tightness.

1st round draft pick Ryoichi Adachi started his rehab workouts (fracture in his right thumb) on Thursday.  Adachi had surgery on his thumb in Kobe and returned to Miyakojima on Wednesday.
