  • Sho Nakata has not been feeling well.  He did not join the rest of the team for practices on Monday and instead did his own workouts.  He has been the designated hitter the last seven games to reduce the strain on his body.  If his condition does not improve, there is a chance he might not make the starting line-up for home games when the Inter-league season begins.
