Itokazu, Masui to rejoin the Fighters’ rotation?

It seems the Fighters will be bringing Hirotoshi Masui and Keisaku Itokazu back in to the starting rotation.  Itokazu will likely start a game against Lotte on the 18th and Masui will likely get a start on the 20th against Seibu.

Both players were out with injuries they suffered in June -- Itokazu with a right flank injury and Masui with some inflammation in his right shoulder.

This could give the Fighters a potential rotation of Yu Darvish, Masaru Takeda, Bobby Keppel, Masaru Nakamura, Itokazu, and Masui (not necessarily in that order).
