Eishin Soyogi was called up to Ichi-gun camp on Tuesday.  He spent about an hour swinging the bat 213 swings during extra batting practice on Tuesday.  He also stood in the batter's box during Shota Nakazaki's bullpen session and took fielding practice at both short and second.

Soyogi has been taking things slow since he had right knee surgery in October 2012.
