[9/26/2016] Ayumu Ishikawa taken off active roster

Ayumu Ishikawa was taken off the active roster today because he is not scheduled to pitch again during the regular season. He will instead begin preparations for the Climax Series.

The coaching staff was planning to give Ishikawa another staff for a shot at tying Softbank’s Tsuyoshi Wada for the lead in wins, but he opted for extra rest and preparation time.
