Seth Greisinger left today's exhibition game against Chunichi early because of discomfort in his right shoulder.

"I do not think [Greisinger] will be able to start the second game of the season.  Even if he says he is ok, I cannot let him throw.  It is close to the area he felt pain in during spring camp.  He said he felt something when throwing the change.  I was worried because he had not pitched in any exhibition games.  I thought it was a possibility, so I am not surprised.  This means pitchers like [Yuji] Nishino and [Tomohisa] Otani will have a chance.  I would like to see them step up," said Tsutomu Ito.

Greisinger is scheduled to report to Ni-gun on Sunday.
