[5/23/2016] Kazuki Yoshimi shifting to starts on six days of rest

Kazuki Yoshimi had surgery on his right elbow for the fifth time in his career last fall. He got at least ten days of rest for his first four starts of the season out of concern for the elbow, but on Sunday, he took the mound against the Yomiuri Giants on six days of rest. He threw eighty-two pitches over five innings and picked up his first win since May 9, 2015. Assuming no issues, he will most likely shift over to a schedule of starts on six days of rest.
