Daisuke Miura will likely pitch once every ten days to keep him fresh for when the team really needs him.  His first start of the regular season could come against the Hanshin Tigers on April 1 at Kyocera Dome.


The Bay Stars will decide on Thursday whether or not Alex Ramirez is healthy enough to make the opening day starting line-up.


Hiroyuki Fukuyama was sent down to Ni-gun on Tuesday.


Kiyoshi Nakahata apparently is not entirely satisfied with the new mascot.  When asked his opinion during a fan club event at Yokohama Stadium on Tuesday, he said, "We are a team trying to emphasize mobility but with short legs like that, how can he run?"
