[6/21/2016] Chihiro Kaneko could pitch in a Ni-gun rehab game

Junichi Fukura told the media on June 20 that he does not expect Chihiro Kaneko (right shoulder) to return to the active roster this month. There was talk about him getting a start during a two-game Rakuten series in Okinawa that begins on June 28, but Fukura said he would toss at least two more bullpen sessions (June 22 and 26) before they made any other decisions about his schedule. He also hinted at the possibility of Kaneko getting a rehab start at Ni-gun.
