Hector Luna (left knee) is still considered day-to-day.
"I want to avoid missing a large number of games. We will see how I am feeling before the game. But since I am here in Okinawa, I may as well play," said Luna.

Takahiro Mahara (right shoulder) tossed situational batting practice indoors on Sunday. He faced six batters, gave up two hits, walked one, and struck out one. He threw twenty-three pitches and topped out at 145km/h. Assuming no problems, he should get to pitch in a Ni-gun game against Softbank on the 12th. That could put him in line for a return to the active roster some time in late-July.
