Workouts on Sunday were moved indoors because of the rain.  A number of position players, including Wily Mo PenaEsteban German, Yoshio Itoi, and Tomotaka Sakaguchi, stood into the batter's box during pitcher bullpen sessions.

Hiroshi Moriwaki named Sakaguchi his captain during a pre-spring camp meeting on January 31.  The team did not have a captain last season because Moriwaki wanted everyone to be a leader.  He decided to go back to having a captain after the team finished in 5th.
