[3/26/2017] Tomoyuki Sugano could be replaced as opening day starter

Tomoyuki Sugano is still slated to get the opening day start on March 31, but could be replaced if he needs a little more time to rest (not just physically, but also mentally and emotionally) after participating in the World Baseball Classic. If he is replaced, his first start of the regular season will most likely be pushed back to the Yokohama at Yokohama series that begins on April 4.
