Quick Notes

  • Nichiro, Ichiro Suzuki's look-alike, showed up at camp for the third straight day on Friday.  Source: Nikkan Sports 2/14/2014
  • 5th round draft pick Seiya Inoue went 5-for-7 with two home runs and four RBI in two intra-squad games.  There is a chance he will be in the line-up batting fourth during an exhibition game against Orix on the 16th.  Source: Sponichi 2/14/2014


Yuji Nishino will join Ichi-gun camp on the 16th.  He started the year at Ni-gun camp because coaches were concerned about his right shoulder and wanted him to take things slow.  He will likely be given looks as a reliever.
