...Bob Keppel could follow Yu Dravish and Masaru Takeda in the starting rotation.  Nikkan Sports mentions both Keppel and Buddy Carlyle as back of the rotation pitchers (5 and 6 slots).

Seems the Fighters were also informed by the umps that Carlyle was making a move during the set position that could have been called a balk 2 or 3 times.

...Sho Nakata finished Wednesday, 0-for-3 with 2 strike outs.  He spent time after the game checking on video footage of his at bats.  Nakata told reporters that he wasn't keeping the barrel of the bat level.
