Yoh got the start in center during a Ni-gun game against Yakult on March 19 and was scheduled to get three at bats, but left on defense in the second inning because of tightness in his legs. There was talk he might be ready to rejoin the Ichi-gun team on March 20, but those plans were put on hold.

Yoh practiced with the San-gun team at Giants Stadium today. His workouts included dashes, playing catch, long distance throwing, and batting practice. He told reporters he was okay swinging the bat and throwing the ball.
