    Arakane could probably help the Buffs, but I think the real winners here are the Hawks since they need bullpen help other than Settsu, Falkenborg, Mahara, and Kattoh.

      The Hawks’ pen is a mess right now. Three of them are in the top 10 for appearances – Settsu is pacing the CL with 18 appearances (19.1 IP), Falkenborg and Mahara are tied at 13 appearances a piece (14.1 IP and 13.1 IP respectively), and Katto actually isn’t too far behind with 11 appearances (15.1 IP). And this is after all their chatter during the off-season about how they need to rest Settsu more because he threw so much last season.
