The Fighters are concerned about Sho Nakata's left pinky because it has not yet fully healed.  His name was left off the batting practice schedule on Friday after coaches saw him taking big cuts on Thursday.  The coaches will continue to schedule periodic batting practice off-days to make sure Nakata does not overdo things.

Seibu Lions

The Lions are planning to make some changes to their coaching staff, but cannot until after their season officially ends.  There are some in the organization that are apparently concerned new Chunichi GM Hiromitsu Ochiai will hire some of the people they are targeting.
