Quick Notes

  • The Buffaloes will hold a press conference for Yuniesky Betancourt on the 24th.  He will officially join the team for workouts beginning on the 25th.  Source: Nikkan Sports 2/17/2014
  • Yoshio Itoi took things slow on Tuesday and will again take things slow on Wednesday because coaches are concerned about his fatigue levels.  Source: Sanspo 2/18/2014
  • Chihiro Kaneko is slated to earn his domestic FA option this season.  Team officials are hoping to sit down with him during the season.  They tried to sign him to a multi-year contract during the winter, but he insisted on a one-year deal because he did not want the security to make him lazy.  Source: Sponichi 2/18/2014
