In other rotation-related news, Tsuyoshi Wada (left elbow) might not be ready for the Climax Series (First or Final). He is making progress, but he does not want to push too hard and has not yet tossed a bullpen session.

Shota Takeda will be saved for the First Game of the Final Stage. Kenichi Nakata will be waiting in the wings if the First Stage goes to three games.
