Hideki Matsui could take some cuts at the plate on 9th (the last day of the second block of camp), when the weather is expected to be nice.

Daily Sports figures it will be some time during the third block of camp, when Shigeo Nagashima is scheduled for a visit.  Matsui could use the second block to do a little practicing.

The Giants are interested in asking for Matsui for his opinion when looking into new talent in the United States.
