The Swallows closed out spring camp in Urasoe today.

Masanori Ishikawa took things slow during practice today due to tightness in his left calf.  Ishikawa tweaked the calf during practices on Monday.

Ishikawa probably will not travel with team to Sapporo for their exhibition game against the Nippon Ham Fighters on March 3.  His status for the charity game on March 10 is unknown at this point.

Yoshinori Sato has been testing cleats during spring camp that have one fewer spike than the version he used last season.  His next possible outings: an exhibition game against the Nippon Ham Fighters March 4 and an exhibition game against Hiroshima on March 11.

Through Monday, Ueda is 15-for-34 over nine games.
