Quick Notes

  • Daniel Cabrera (had some back tightness) rejoined Chatan camp on Saturday.  He participated in general workouts and told reporters he felt great.  Source: Nikkan Sports 2/22/2014
  • Motonobu Tanishige will most likely make it into games as a player some time on or after March 1.  Until then, he will continue to sit in the dugout as a manager.  Source: Nikkan Sports 2/22/2014


Takuya Asao felt some tightness in his right elbow after tossing a bullpen session on the 20th.  He was evaluated at a hospital and did not play catch on the 21st.  He resumed playing catch on Saturday -- he threw the ball a distance of about twenty-seven meters -- but was scratched from his batting practice scrimmage on the 25th as a precaution.  He was not planning on throwing the ball on Saturday, but did because he felt good.

Asao told reporters he was not hurt and that he only went to the hospital because he wanted to make sure.
