Shugo Fujii (YOM) worked out at Ishikawa Baseball Stadium today in preparation for a start against the Yakult Swallows on the 31st. This will be Fujii's first start since 7/30.
This could be a big start for the Giants as they continue to look for some stability out of their starting rotation. Since June, the starting rotation has recorded just 15 victory against 26 losses (compared to a 26-12 record between March and May). The bullpen has also gone from tossing 58.0 innings in May, to 78.0 innings in June, 87.0 innings in July, and finally 90.2 innings in August (and with one more game left to go).
