[UPDATE 5/11 @ 6:03pm]

Takeda started playing light catch (about twenty meters) at the Chikugo facilities today. Assuming no setbacks, he could toss a bullpen session some time later week and pitch in his first rehab game before the end of the month. He hopes to make it back to the active roster during Inter-league play.
