Quick Notes

  • 1st round draft pick Yuta Kakita was scratched from his outing on Sunday against Nippon Ham because of concerns about his elbow.  He will be skipped once around.  Source: Sanspo 2/22/2014


Tony Blanco raised his hands in the air and shouted Anaconda! in front of the media on Friday.  The sudden performance was apparently inspired by Kiyoshi Nakahata when the two bumped into each other in the bathroom a while back and the manager glanced a peak and later told reporters, "There was an anaconda!"  Blanco is thinking about doing the performance after hitting home runs.
