[1/1/2017] Shohei Otani could start first game of WBC

Samurai Japan Manager Hiroki Kukubo was originally thinking about using Shohei Otani as a pitcher during the upcoming World Baseball Classic, but could using him primarily as a position player depending on how many starting pitchers make the final roster. Kokubo could also give Otani the first start of the tournament and then switch to using him as a position player.
