Quick Notes

===

Shota Ono was examined at a hospital in Tokyo on Friday and was diagnosed with a left ankle inversion sprain.  He will need about three or more weeks for a full recovery.  He is scheduled to report to the Ni-gun facilities in Kamagaya for rehab after four days of rest.  There is a chance he will not be ready in time for opening day.

Ono suffered the injury while running the bases during Thursday's practice game against Lotte.
