[4/8/2016] Buffaloes planning to start Kaneko, Nishi over the weekend

The Orix Buffaloes are scheduled to play a two-game series against Softbank over the weekend. Chihiro Kaneko is lined up for the start on Saturday. The start on Sunday would normally go to Brandon Dickson, but the Buffaloes could instead turn to Yuki Nishi.

Nishi has struggled in both his starts this season. He gave up six runs (all earned) on seven hits and three walks and lasted just three plus innings during his last start on April 5 against Rakuten.

[4/7/2016] Erik Cordier sent to Ni-gun for a tune-up

Erik Cordier was taken off the active roster on April 7 for some a tune-up at Ni-gun. The Buffaloes were looking at him as a closer, but they may now be considering another role for him. In the mean time, Yoshihisa Hirano will most likely take over as closer.

The Buffaloes are expected to add Pat Misch to the active roster.
