Koyo Aoyagi picked up a win in his first Ichi-gun appearance/start on June 1 against Rakuten at kobo Stadium.
Hiroki Uemoto complained of lower back pain during pre-game practices on June 1. He will be taken off the active roster and Tsuyoshi Nishioka (left hamstring) will be called up.
Nishioka may still have some difficulty running, but should not have any problems swinging the bat. If he is unable to play defense, he could still be used as a designated hitter or a bat off the bench.0 Comments
