...Tsuyoshi Wada started the game for the Hawks today.  He's going for his 16th Inter-league win of his career.  Against the Dragons, he's 2-1 with a 1.86 ERA over 4 starts.

...Kenji Otonari will likely get tomorrow's start against the Chunichi Dragons.  He'll be looking to pick up his first win since 4/4 (vs Rakuten) -- he's 0-5 in his last 6 starts and has lost his last four consecutive starts.

...Roberto Petagine was indeed added to the active roster today and is in the starting line-up (first base, batting sixth).

...Michael Olmsted arrived in Japan on Friday.  He told reporters his arm was feeling great and that he topped out at 97mph (156km/h) during a practice throwing session.
