[5/24/2016] Hiroyuki Nakajima to return to the active roster

Junichi Fukura is planning to add Hiroyuki Nakajima (right calf) to the active roster today. He is also planning to give the veteran the start at either first or third against Softbank at YafuOku Dome, since Tony Blanco is the designated hitter.

Nakajima recently played in two Ni-gun games against Chunichi (May 20, 21) and went 4-for-9 with two RBI. He has also hit well at YafuOku Dome last year — he went 12-for-38 with five home runs, ten RBI, and a slash line of .316/.458/.711.
