[4/14/2016] Fujikawa taken off active roster for a tune-up

Kyuji Fujikawa will be taken off the active roster on April 14 for a tune-up. Fujikawa was originally scheduled to make his next start on April 17 against Chunichi at Nagoya Dome, but Minoru Iwata will get the start after his game against Hanshin at Koshien was rained out on April 13. If Fujikawa returns in the minimum, he could make his next start on April 24 against Hiroshima at Mazda Stadium.

Ryosuke Ogata will take Fujikawa’s spot on the active roster.
