Hideaki Wakui told reporters he wanted to throw about 100 pitches during his next bullpen session.  His session on Tuesday was the first time he threw off an incline in about three months.  If he can get Ito to catch one of his sessions, it will most likely be during the third block of camp.

5th round draft pick Seiya Inoue swung the bat forty-four times during batting practice on Monday and collected twenty-five could-be hits, including six that went over the fence.  All six he hit over the fence came against a left-handed batting practice pitcher (nineteen swings).  Of the six, five were hit out between center and right.

Inoue could bat fourth during an intra-squad game on the 12th.
