[5/12/2016] Tsuyoshi Nishioka plays defense in rehab game

Tsuyoshi Nishioka played defense in a Ni-gun rehab game on May 12 for the first time since he was taken off the active roster with pain in his left hamstring. He got the start at second and batted lead-off against Orix. He did not record any hits (0-for-3), but did drive in a run when he grounded out to short with the bases loaded and one out in the fourth. He also stole a base. Nishioka told reporters he could field and hit without any problems (he handled three chances in the game without any problems).
