...It seems G.G. Sato will be added to the active roster in time for the Yomiuri Giants game tonight. In 9 Ni-gun games, G.G. Sato went 13-for-33 (.394) with 3 doubles, 4 homers, and 9 RBI. In games where there is no DH, it seems the Lions will platoon G.G. Sato with Dee Brown.
...Kimiyasu Kudo could be added to the active roster some time after Inter-league play. Said pitching coach Tetsuya Shiozaki, "During Inter-league play, I think pitchers usually have to work at least 2 innings before their at bat comes up, and because of that, it might be best to wait until after Inter-league play." Sounds like the Lions are worried about the possibility of wasting a bat during games where there is no DH.
