[UPDATE 6/23 @ 10:09pm]

Kaneko will toss another bullpen session in front of Ichi-gun coaches on June 26. He asked for a chance to pitch in a rehab game at Ni-gun and could get a start during a three-game series against Chunichi that begins on June 28. Assuming no setbacks, he could make his return to the active roster in time for a Softbank three-games series that begins on July 5.
