Daniel Cabrera was sent down to Ni-gun camp on Friday.  Cabrera complained of back tightness after fielding practice on the 9th and was taking things slow.  The coaches were expecting him to increase his workouts as his back improved, but he apparently has not made any changes to his schedule.  Head coach Shigekazu Mori told reporters the team did not need players that had no desire.

Soma Yamaguchi was called up to take Cabrera's spot.
