[4/16/2017] Yuya Yanagi pitches in batting practices scrimmage

Yuya Yanagi pitched in a batting practice scrimmage at Nagoya Stadium on April 15. He faced ten hitters (about two innings), threw fifty-one pitches, allowed two hits, walked one, and struck out three.

Yanagi was sidelined for a bit when he developed tightness in his right elbow after starting an exhibition game against Nippon Ham on March 2. He worked his way back and threw a professional high 130 pitches during a bullpen session on April 1. Assuming no issues, he could make an appearance during a three-game series against Ni-gun Hiroshima that begins on April 21.
