Nine players, including Junji Ogawa, Shinya Miyamoto, Masanori Ishikawa, and Yoshinori Sato, worked out at the indoor training facilities at Jingu before meeting with 300 season ticket holders for about an hour (played catch, signed autographs).

Kyohei Muranaka's start against the Hanshin Tigers was rained out today.

===

Wladimir Balentien showed up with blond hair today.

===

Kazuhiro Hatakeyama worked out for about three hours today.

Masanori Ishikawa will likely be the opening day starter after tossing five solid innings in his start against the Orix Buffaloes on Friday.  Assuming he really gets the opening day start, it will be his fifth opening day start in a row and seventh overall.
