[8/31/2016] Taiga Hirasawa to miss today’s game with fever

Taiga Hirasawa will miss today’s game against the Orix Buffaloes at QVC Marine because he is not feeling well (fever). He never went to the stadium and instead rested at home. The Chiba Lotte Marines are monitoring his condition. They are hoping he will be ready to play against after a full day’s rest. If he needs more time, they may consider taking him off the active roster.

[8/31/2016] Nikkan Sports: Saburo to retire

According to report by Nikkan Sports, Saburo is scheduled to hold a press conference on September 1 to announce his retirement. He turned forty this year and has spent all of his time at Ni-gun this year. Since his dream was to play until he was forty, he may have decided there was nothing else for him to accomplish.

[8/31/2016] Chunichi interested in retaining Iwase, Araki, Morino, and Viciedo

The Chunichi Dragons believe Hitoki Iwase (41), Masahiro Araki (38), and Masahiko Morino (38) are still capable of being productive players and plan to offer them contracts for the 2017 season. The Dragons will wait for Iwase to decide if he wants to continue playing or not.

The Dragons also believe Dayan Viciedo is an integral part of the team. He is also interested in returning. The two sides are expected to reach an agreement for the 2017 season.

[8/30/2016] Shohei Otani could prep for Softbank series by pitching in two games

According to Sanspo…

Nippon Ham Fighters’ Pitching Coach Masato Yoshii told reporters that Shohei Otani probably will not pitch this week because he could use a little more time to prepare. Otani’s schedule recently took a hit when he missed a few days because of a cold. He resumed bullpen sessions on August 30.

If Otani does not pitch out of the bullpen in any games this week, it could be an indication that the Fighters are planning to delay his return to the starting rotation until mid-September. That might work out since they play their last two games against Softbank on September 21 and 22.

According to Tokyo Sports…

Otani could make an appearance out of the bullpen on September 7 against Lotte at Sapporo Dome and September 15 against Orix at Sapporo Dome because the team has the day off the following day. That could put him in line for a start on September 22 against Softbank at YafuOku Dome.

According to Sponichi…

Otani could make an appearance in relief during a two-game series against Lotte that begins on September 6. He could get a “warm-up” start during a three-game series against Orix that begins on September 15. The two previous appearances would work up to a start during a two-games series against Softbank that begins on September 21. He might get one more start before the end of the season on September 28 against Seibu.
