[7/1/2016] Yusei Kikuchi might not return until after the All-Star break

The Seibu Lions originally thought Yusei Kikuchi (right side) would be able to return after skipping one of his starts, but they are worried about rushing him back too soon. There is a good chance Seibu will delay his return until after the All-Star break.

Kikuchi is able to play catch, but has not yet tossed a bullpen session since he was taken off the active roster on June 23.
