[3/27/2017] Yomiuri Giants opening day start: Sugano out, Mikolas in

Yoshinobu Takahashi told people at a team gathering earlier today that Miles Mikolas will start the home opener on March 31 and Tomoyuki Sugano the road opener on April 4. Takahashi decided to make the change because Sugano participated in the World Baseball Classic.

Mikolas was in the United States for the birth of his first child. He returned to Japan on March 26. He rejoined the team today for Ichi-gun practices at Tokyo Dome and tossed a bullpen session.
