      The last Japanese report I could find (from 3/24) said he took part in pre-game practices and was able to things without too many problems. He was also quoted as saying, “I am still not prepared to play right away. I need to build up my body more. The will do whatever the manager and trainers want me to do.”

      I just checked the Ni-gun batting stats (updated through 4/2) and I do not see anything from Hoffpauir, so my guess is that he is still rehabbing the left knee.

      I still can’t believe they brought him back this year! That .222/.298/.374 w/12 HR and 36 RBI included a really hot April…

    Thanks for the reply.We in Chicago are still fans of Micah and wish him the most success. There is no sense in risking further injury by playing before full healing has taken place.
