[1/29/2017] Shun Yamaguchi reassigned to San-gun spring camp

The Yomiuri Giants announced on January 29 that Shun Yamaguchi will start the year at San-gun spring camp instead of Ni-gun spring camp out of concern for his right shoulder. Yamaguchi had problems with the shoulder last season and has been careful with it during the off-season.
