Norichika Aoki (MIL) told reporters he was happy to make the MLB roster but was not really moved because he was not able to win a starting job.
Tsuyoshi Wada (BAL) threw about forty pitches in the bullpen on Friday.
Arlington mayor Robert Cluck invited about twenty Japanese reporters out for some Darvish Burgers on Thursday night and told them of his plans for a Darvish Road (if he helps the team win). He also mentioned making Darvish a tourism ambassador; naming Habikino, Osaka a sister city; inviting him to a rodeo tournament; and asking him to do something with the Dallas Cowboys.
