[4/9/2016] Utsumi, Otake still not ready for Ichi-gun

According to ZakZak, the Giants have been turning to younger pitchers like Kentaro Taira for Ichi-gun starts because Tetsuya Utsumi and Kan Otake are still not ready.

Ni-gun manager Masaki Saito told reporters that veteran pitchers are expected to get Ni-gun hitters out and that if they were getting hit, he could not recommend them for the active roster. He also said that pitchers like Utsumi and Otake were not on the active roster because they were not pitching well.
