...Where would the Fighters be right now with out Bobby Keppel? Since getting his first NPB loss on 4/15 in his third overall start of the year, Keppel has gone 7-0 in 8 starts with a 1.89 ERA (13 ER in 61.2 IP). What's more, he's also averaging 7+ innings a start. Can't get much better than that.
...Hisashi Takeda will likely be added to the active roster on the 15th (vs Yakult).
