[3/25/2017] Hanshin Tigers possible opening day starting rotation

The Hanshin Tigers opening day starting rotation will most likely include Randy Messenger, Atsushi Nomi, Shintaro Fujinami, and Yuta Iwasada. Takumi Akiyama and Koyo Aoyagi could round out the rotation.

  • Minoru Iwata was reassigned to Ni-gun.
  • Fujinami rejoined the team on March 25. He is scheduled to get a tune-up start at Ni-gun against Orix on March 28. Assuming everything is okay, his first turn in the rotation will most likely come on April 4 against Yakult at Kyocera Dome.
