Leslie Anderson (left elbow) played in his first rehab game at Ni-gun against Lotte on May 19. He was the starting designated hitter and batted fifth. He went 1-for-2 with an HBP. He recorded a two-run double to right-center in the third inning. He took fielding practice at first base during pre-game workouts. Assuming not setbacks, he could be ready to join the active roster in time for the Hiroshima at Mazda Stadium series that begins on May 24.
