[7/30/2016] Shohei Otani to miss another start as pitcher

Shohei Otani popped blister on his right middle finger during his last start on July 10. He was skipped once in the rotation and used in relief on July 24. Coaches were unimpressed with the outing and felt the blister might still be giving him problems. He was penciled in for a possible start on July 31, but the Nippon Ham Fighters decided to go with Takayuki Kato.
