  • Yasutomo Kubo faced ten batters during situational batting practice and threw thirty-one pitches while allowing two hits. (Daily Sports)


Shunsuke was removed from today's game against the Orix Buffaloes when he took an HBP off the left side of his helmet during his at bat in the third inning.  It does not appear as though he lost consciousness as he was never taken to the hospital.


Yasutomo Kubo and Minoru Iwata are scheduled to pitch in situational batting practice today.


Shinjiro Hiyama wore cleats while taking soft-toss batting practice at Naruohama on Saturday.  It was the first time he wore cleats during batting practice since  he got hurt.  Hiyama is scheduled to take indoor batting practice against a pitching machine today.

Akihito Fujii received treatment for his oblique injury and also spent some time doing other kinds of workouts, like riding the stationary bike.
