[5/13/2016] Shinnosuke Abe could be ready for Inter-league play

Shinnosuke Abe (right shoulder) has been steadily improvingĀ and couldĀ be ready for the start of Inter-league play.

Abe’s workouts at Giants Stadium on May 12 included long distance throwing with Toshiya Sugiuchi, catching Kan Otake in the bullpen, and batting practice. Assuming no problems, he might be ready for some playing time as a designated hitter in an upcoming Ni-gun Lotte series that begins on May 17. It would be his first Ni-gun game since April 15.
