[4/14/2016] Dragons not planning to rush Ryosuke Hirata

The media learned on April 13 that the Dragons are not planning to rush Ryosuke Hirata (left hip) because they want him back at 100 percent when he returns. He is also expected to play in a couple of rehab games at Ni-gun before they consider calling him up. Based on the current schedule, his first rehab game could come during a three-game Softbank series that begins on April 19. That could put his return to the active roster some time after April 21.
