Kenji Tomura’s first start, on April 7 against Orix at Hotto Motto Kobe, was canceled because of rain. His rescheduled start at Ni-gun, on April 8 against Lotte at Rifu, was canceled because of poor field conditions.

Tomura is scheduled to re-join the Ichi-gun team for practices on April 9. He is slated to get a start on April 14 against Lotte at kobo Stadium.

Tomura’s first starts of the year in 2013 and 2015 were also rained out.
