Sho Nakata developed a cramp in his right calf during practices on the 11th.  The calf has not been quite the same since then.  The trainers asked the coaches on the 17th to give the slugger a pass during base-running exercises as a precaution.  He did get the start a third during Tuesday's practice game against Samsung.
