Shoitsu Omatsu was at Nagoya Dome during practice earlier today.  Omatsu didn't take any batting practice but instead walked the outfield area with the trainer to check on his legs.

Norifumi Nishimura told reporters that while Omatsu was showing improvement, he didn't want to force Omatsu back too soon.  The team will continue to monitor Omatsu on a daily basis to see if he's capable of playing (off the bench).

Shoitsu Omatsu had his right hamstring checked out again today and was diagnosed with a minor hamstring strain.  Omatsu was not available to play tonight and spent his time at the stadium receiving treatment for his injury.  It seems there's a chance he still might be able to come back before the end of the series, but for the time being, he is essentially considered day-to-day.
