The Giants introduced their new arrivals before their game against the Yakult Swallows: Toshiya Sugiuchi, Shuichi MurataTakayuki Takaguchi, John Bowker, D.J. Houlton, and 4th round draft pick Kyosuke Takagi.


Yoshihito Ishii was taking things slow since he started feeling lower back pains during an exhibition game against the Softbank Hawks on March 9.  He joined the Ni-gun team today for general practices today and told reporters that he no longer felt any pain.


Assuming no problems, Yuya Kubo's next outing could come against the Yokohama Bay Stars on March 24.
