Hitoki Iwase and Kazuki Yoshimi joined the Ichi-gun team for workouts at Nagoya Dome on April 4.
Iwase is looking to make his first Ichi-gun appearance since August 6, 2014. He told reporters he felt good and was able to throw. He could be added to the active roster on April 5.
Yoshimi had surgery on his right elbow in October last year. He told head coach Shigekazu Mori that he was ready to play. He could start an Ichi-gun game at Nagoya Dome on either April 9 or 10 (both games against the Giants).
