Quick Notes

  • Yuniesky Betancourt could play in his first game on either March 2 (vs Lotte) or March 4 (vs Yokohama).  He was in the dugout on Saturday, but only as an observer.  Source: Daily Sports 3/1/2014
  • Saturday's game against Seibu was called after four innings due to rain.  Pitchers that were unable to make their scheduled appearances -- like 1st round draft pick Kazumasa Yoshida and 2nd round draft pick Daiki Tomei -- will get to pitch some time on or after the 4th.  Source: Sponichi 3/1/2014Sponichi 3/1/2014
  • Yoshio Itoi (right side) returned to Kobe to get treatment for his right side.  It is unknown when he will rejoin the Ichi-gun team.  Source: Sanspo 3/1/2014

Ryoichi Adachi was late to practices on Friday because he was getting his left hand examined at a hospital (there was swelling near the base of the thumb, he was diagnosed with a bruise).  Hiroshi Moriwaki was not happy about the tardiness and told reporters the team would never really improve until players and trainers took things more seriously.  In Adachi's case, he had other options, like waiting until after practices or seeking emergency medical help.
