Giants rotation against the Hanshin Tigers

The Giants rotation for the upcoming three game series against the Hanshin Tigers at Tokyo Dome (beginning today) will apparently consist of Seth Greisinger, Tetsuya Utsumi, and Shun Tono.

Past that, it seems Hideki Asai could get his first start with the Giants on the 6th against Hiroshima.  With Shugo Fujii out of the rotation and at Ni-gun in order to make adjustments, Asai may have a shot at breaking into the rotation, especially after he tossed 6 shutout innings in a Ni-gun game against Nippon Ham for the Giants on 8/1.
