The Giants sent Satoshi Fukuda down to Ni-gun because of lower back pains and called up 4th round draft pick Kyosuke Takagi to take his place.


D.J. Houlton started playing catch today for the first time since he took a batted ball off the back of his right hand during a game on March 4.

"I did not feel any discomfort will playing catch or running.  I may be able to toss a bullpen session depending on how I am feeling tomorrow," said Houlton.


Shigeyuki Furuki had a laundry mix-up and was wearing Satoshi Fukuda's uniform when he was called up to pinch-hit for Daisuke Fujimura in the 9th inning of Tuesday's game against the Hiroshima Carp.
