[5/17/2016] Kyuji Fujikawa will most likely remain in the bullpen

There are currently no plans to move Kyuji Fujikawa back to the starting rotation. When pitching coach Isao Koda was asked about the possibility of Fujikawa returning to the rotation on May 16, he said it was possible, since it was something he started out doing this year, but wondered if it was the best thing to do. He then said that unless the team needed a starter, he would rather see the thirty-five-year-old keep his current role since bouncing back and forth was not a good thing.
