Quick Notes


Pitching Coach Yui Tomori is not happy with Daniel Cabrera's attitude.  According to a report by Tokyo Sports, Cabrera has been taking it easy during camp for various reasons, including tightness in his lower back and the weather.  Tomori is frustrated because he thinks the thirty-two-year-old is just being lazy and may have even gone so far as to suggest he be demoted and the team go with three position players.
