The Giants announced today that marathon runner Arata Fujiwara will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch on opening day.

Shigeyuki Furuki returned to Tokyo on Sunday after suffering a contusion to his left shoulder on a defensive play at second on the 8th inning of Saturday's game against the Softbank Hawks.

===

Shun Tono has been scratched from his next outing on March 15 (vs Chunichi) because of tightness in his right shoulder.

===

Shuichi Murata does not have a hit in his last sixteen trips to the plate (span of five games).

===

Ikusei pitcher Kyohei Odachi has pitched well enough to make the Giants consider adding him to the seventy-man roster and using him as another lefty option out of the bullpen.
