Bryan Bullington and Dennis Sarfate worked out on their day off today.  They were also seen playing catch for about fifteen minutes in the light rain at Mazda Stadium.

If 1st round draft pick Yusuke Nomura continues to pitch well (he tossed three shutout innings against the Chunichi Dragons on Sunday), he could end up starting the third game of the season, behind Kenta Maeda and Bullington.

The Hiroshima Carp announced today that they will add two t-shirts featuring 1st round draft pick Yusuke Nomura and 4th round draft pick Shohei Habu to their product line-up.  The shirts will go on sale March 6.

Maeda and Yuya Fukui appeared at a ceremony for Momimiji Ginko's Carp V Yokin 2012 accounts earlier today.

Kenjiro Nomura on K. Maeda slipping on the mound during his outing on Sunday: "It was a boneheaded thing to do.  Hopefully this turned out to be a good lesson for him to check the mound before pitching."
