Seth Greisinger left today's exhibition game against Chunichi early because of discomfort in his right shoulder.
"I do not think [Greisinger] will be able to start the second game of the season. Even if he says he is ok, I cannot let him throw. It is close to the area he felt pain in during spring camp. He said he felt something when throwing the change. I was worried because he had not pitched in any exhibition games. I thought it was a possibility, so I am not surprised. This means pitchers like [Yuji] Nishino and [Tomohisa] Otani will have a chance. I would like to see them step up," said Tsutomu Ito.
Greisinger is scheduled to report to Ni-gun on Sunday.

UPDATE @ 11:44pm - Some quotes, via Daily Sports...
Team president Nakamura: "[Greisinger] has provided stability. He has pitched above our expectations. We would like him to stay. ... I obviously expect him to ask for a raise. If we can just find common middle ground."
Greisinger: "My teammates, the coaches, and the fans are great. This is a nice place to play. I do not know what will happen at this point, but I would be happy if I can play here again."
Takashi Ogino is coming back from right knee surgery and Tatsuya Uchi is coming back from right elbow surgery. Ogino played in his first rehab game on Saturday: Ni-gun vs Seibu, 0-for-2, 2 R. Uchi pitched in his first rehab game on Sunday: Ni-gun vs Seibu, 1 IP, 3 BF, 14 NP, 0 H, 1 SO, 0 BB/HBP, 0 R, 0 ER.
Norifumi Nishimura on when they expect Ogino and Uchi to return to the active roster, via Nikkan Sports: "We were first thinking mid-May, but there is no need to rush their returns. Uchi needs more innings and Ogino needs more at bats. It would hurt them, and the team, if [we rushed their returns and] they got hurt again."
