Not sure what the article says exactly, but here's a rough translation:
It directs to the test, also this person is advancing adjustment with urgent pitch. It runs this day with the ground inside Kanagawa prefecture, being packed. Ordinary year the bull pen had done to enter in the middle of February, but you glared the test in the United States, already the Giants ball park (Kawasaki city) and the like with threw in and "the shoulder showed the state of 8 tenths" and self-confidence.
Oh I agree, totally. The article seemingly doesn't mention the Rays though.
