|Bullpen Sessions / Batting Practice|
Nick Stavinoha, who had been taken things slow due to an inguinal hernia, returned to working out with the rest of the team today.
"I am making good progress. I still do not know when I will be able to play in games though." said Stavinoha.
Kenta Maeda complained of some tightness in his left buttock after losing his footing on the mound during his outing against the Chunichi Dragons on Sunday. It apparently was not serious as he told reporters on Monday that he was feeling fine.
