Keiichi Yabu to join the active roster on the 10th?

Keiichi Yabu pitched in a Ni-gun game against Shonan yesterday and tossed a scoreless inning of relief.  Yabu faced a total four batters and gave up a hit and struck out on batter; he topped out at 146km/h.

The Eagles will likely pitch him again to today to see how well he pitches on consecutive days.  Depending on how things go, he could be added to the active roster as early as the 10th.
