Saito leaves camp

The massive earthquake that struck Japan on Friday devastated areas of Miyagi Prefecture, an area north of Tokyo and the home of Brewers reliever Takashi Saito. 

Saito has already been able to reach his wife, Yukiko, and three daughters, according to the Brewers, but has been unable to reach his parents. Early Friday morning, he asked permission to leave Brewers camp to work on contacting loved ones back home. 

Saito was not scheduled to pitch today, according to the club. He last appeared in a game on March 8, and has been following a slightly different schedule than other relievers because he finished last year with a shoulder injury.
Obviously, Saito’s thoughts will be with his family, friends and countrymen today and ours are, too.
