Quick Notes

  • Owner Yoshihiko Miyauchi was at Okinawa camp on Saturday.  Sponichi 2/8/2014
  • Yoshio Itoi and Wily Mo Pena will get one plate appearance during an intra-squad game on the 9th.  6th round draft pick Kyo Okunami and Ikusei 1st round draft pick Hiroaki Azuma will be called up from Ni-gun to play in the game.  Source: Sponichi 2/8/2014
  • Chihiro Kaneko has yet to toss a bullpen session.  Source: Nikkan Sports 2/8/2014


Takahiro Okada is taking things slow right now because of tightness in his left quadriceps.  He will most likely sit out Sunday's intra-squad game.
