[3/24/2017] Shinnosuke Abe overcoming some tightness in his legs

Shinnosuke Abe left a game on March 15 early because of some tightness in his legs. Since then, he has spent most of his time either as a designated hitter or bat off the bench. He may be having trouble adjusting his workload: he took thing slow last year and ended up hurting his right shoulder before the start of the season; he increased his workouts this year and may have ended up overworking himself.

Abe was able to return to the starting line-up yesterday against Nippon Ham and went 0-for-3 (F9, G4, F8, BB).

[3/18/2017] Hirokazu Sawamura might not be ready for opening day

Hirokazu Sawamura has not pitched in a game since he was tossed from a Nippon Ham exhibition game on March 4 (he threw a dangerous pitch; it was his first and only pitch of the game). He was allowed to leave an exhibition game against Lotte at Zozo Marine early because he was not feeling well. The Yomiuri Giants will wait to see how he is feeling in four to five days. If there is a no improvement, he could end up missing the start of the season.

[UPDATE 3/19 @ 10:16pm]

According to reports filed today, Sawamura has been having problems with his right shoulder since late-February. There is a good chance he will not be on the opening day roster. He was reassigned to San-gun for rehab.
