There are currently twenty position players attending Ichi-gun camp.  That will drop to about eighteen after an intra-squad game on the 16th.  If Michihiro Ogasawara and Yoshitomo Tani are ready, they will join Ichi-gun camp on the 23rd, when the Giants play an exhibition game against Hiroshima.  That will likely lead to two more demotions.
