Lotte manager Norifumi Nishimura found a "minor problem" with Hiroki Yamada pitching out of the set position during Tuesday's game and notified the home plate ump.  The ump in turn informed Yamada that it was difficult to tell when he was going into the set and that he might want to do something that would make it easier to see what was going on.  The ump also said he was not breaking any rules, that it was just a minor note, and that it came from Nishimura.  Yamada later told reporters he shrugged off what the home plate ump told him because it was not something coming from him, but from Nishimura.
