1st round draft pick Yuki Matsui was feeling tired on Tuesday and did not toss a bullpen session.  He ended his workouts a little early.

Pitching Coach Yoshinori Sato does not think Matsui is ready to make the Ichi-gun roster this year.  That could change depending on how quickly he develops, but for now, there are still too many things he needs to work on, like improving his balance and polishing his fastball.
