The Dragons practice game against the Yokohama Bay Stars at Nagoya Stadium was rained out today.

Daisuke Yamai is scheduled to start and toss three innings against the Yakult Swallows on Wednesday.

Morimichi Takagi plans to use his everyday players during exhibition games at rural stadiums (March 13 at Gifu, March 14 at Komaki, and March 15 at Hamamatsu) because he wants to give fans what they want (or at least he believes the fans are hoping to see everyone play).

===

The media learned on Monday that the Dragons are not counting on either Maximo Nelson or Enyelbert Soto to make the opening day roster because they do not want to rush either player back from their injuries -- Nelson nursing tightness in his right shoulder since February 10 and Soto, first with a right calf injury on the first day of spring camp and after that lower back pain.

Naomichi Donoue (23) told reporters that he filed marriage papers in Aichi Prefecture with a woman named Chisaki (25) on January 3.  The two had been seeing each other since 2008.
