Tetsuto Yamada (left side) resumed practices today at Toda Stadium. He played some light catch at a distance of about twenty meters and took some soft-toss batting practice (hit around twenty baseballs). He made sure not to push too hard.

Mitsuru Manaka told reporters on August 16 that he plans to bring Yamada back when he is fully ready to return, and not just as a bat off the bench.
