[4/30/2018] Nippon Ham Fighters to call up Kotaro Kiyomiya

Kotaro Kiyomiya is set to join the Ichi-gun team on May 2. Hideki Kuriyama told reporters he does not plan on using the rookie everyday, but would also not bother calling him up if he was going to ride the bench the entire time.

Through April 29, Kiyomiya was 10-for-48 with four home runs, ten RBI, three walks, nine strikeouts, and a slash line of .208/.250/.479 in fourteen games. He went 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI against Ni-gun Yokohama today and extended his hitting streak to four games.
