Seems Tatsunori Hara has seen enough for Tetsuya Utsumi in the starting rotation and will be moving him into the bullpen.

Said Hara, "We don't have the luxury of giving him time off to make adjustments at this point.  We'll have him work out of a different position (bullpen)."

Utsumi had his shortest outing of the season on Tuesday has gone 0-3 with an 8.87 ERA in 6 starts since his last victory on 6/24 (vs Yakult).
