Wladimir Balentien will not be traveling with the team for road exhibition games against Orix (March 5-6 at Kyocera Dome) and Hiroshima (March 8-9 in Fukuyama and Mazda Stadium). He will remain in Tokyo and continue his workouts.
There is a good chance Balentien will end up returning to the outfield after another rough day at first on Saturday.
