Bullpen Sessions / Batting Practice

Masaki Ihara was scheduled to pitch in a game against Lotte on March 1, but his fate was sealed when he gave up three runs on four hits in the 8th inning of Tuesday's practice game against the LG Twins -- he was informed of his demotion to Ni-gun after the game.

It should also be noted that Ihara has now allowed seventeen runs over five innings of work (three games, through Tuesday).


Hayato Terahara tossed his bullpen session on Tuesday to a standing catcher.
