Yoshio Itoi left Thursday's exhibition game against the Softbank Hawks early with tightness near his left ankle.  He appeared to be ok and did play in today's exhibition game against the Chiba Lotte Marines (QVC Marine).


Hideki Kuriyama is thinking about having one pitcher and one position player spot on the active roster reserved for trying Ni-gun players out during the season.

Kuriyama also told reporters on Friday that he would like to see Saito grow into a pitcher that can go the distance (toss complete games).
