Yomiuri Giants

  • Tomoyuki Sugano is 0-2 in four games at Jingu Stadium over his career. It is the one Central League stadium he has yet to record a victory in. He will finish the month of June 0-2. He has gone without a win in a month five times in his career, but this will be the first time he has failed to record at least one victory in a month in which he pitched in at least two games. Source: Nikkan Sports 6/29/2015
  • Aaron Poreda's next start will most likely come on July 2 against Hiroshima. Assuming no roster changes, after that, he will most likely get a start during a three-game Hanshin series that begins on July 10. Source: Daily Sports 6/29/2015

Hanshin Tigers

  • Shintaro Fujinami joined Keishi Suzuki, Toshiaki Moriyasu, Yutaka Enatsu, Daisuke Matsuzaka, and Masahiro Tanaka as the only pitchers drafted out of high school to record 100 or more strikeouts in their first three or more seasons. Source: Sponichi 6/29/2015
  • Kosuke Fukudome and Mauro Gomez went back-to-back in two consecutive games on June 27 (4th inning) and 28 (8th inning). They are the first pair in franchise history to accomplish the feat since Akinobu Mayumi and Randy Bass on June 16 and 17, 1987. Source: Nikkan Sports 6/29/2015, Sponichi 6/29/2015

Hiroshima Carp

  • Hiroki Kuroda is scheduled to start the Yomiuri game on June 30. It will be his first start against Yomiuri since September 14, 2007. Source: Sports Hochi 6/29/2015
  • Second round draft pick Kazuki Yabuta is expected to start a game against Yomiuri at Tokyo Dome on July 1. Source: Daily Sports 6/29/2015

Yakult Swallows

  • Shohei Tateyama was taken off the active roster on June 29 because the Swallows plan to give him at least ten days of rest. According to Nikkan Sports, he is due to earn his international FA option the next time he gets added to the active roster. Source: Nikkan Sports 6/29/2015
