Yomiuri Giants

Shinnosuke Abe (back tightness from Sunday's game) is still a question mark.  The Giants are taking things day-to-day.  He is scheduled to particpate in practices on Tuesday.  Ken Kato will be ready in case Abe is not able to play.

Hiroshima Carp

Kenta Maeda threw thirty-six pitches in the bullpen on Monday.  It was the first session he tossed since he felt pain in his right side.  He is hoping to return to the active roster in time for a Nippon Ham game on the 15th.  If he is feeling ok, he could re-join the Ichi-gun team on the 11th.
