...J.D. Durbin is scheduled to make his Ni-gun debut on the 25th against Hiroshima.  He'll likely ease in as a reliever initially.  On Sunday, Durbin tossed 91 pitches in the bullpen, mixing in pitches like his slider, change, and curve.

...The Softbank Hawks will be hosting an event called Miyazaki Special Game (みやざきスペシャルゲーム) over two home games against the Chunichi Dragons (5/29, 30).  They'll be collecting donations that will be sent to Miyazaki to help with foot-and-mouth disease relief efforts.  Portions of tickets sales from the two games will also be donated to Miyazaki.
