[5/13/2016] Shohei Otani the hitter to sit out Seibu series

Hideki Kuriyama does not plan on using Shohei Otani as a hitter during the Seibu series that begins tonight at Sapporo Dome because he wants the pitcher to focus on winning his next start on May 15. Kuriyama is not as concerned about Otani’s bat, as he is about Otani continuing his development as a pitcher.
