Hanshin Tigers’ rotation news and notes

by on Sep.14, 2010 @ 12:57 pm, under NPB

Jason Standridge (HAN) will likely get tonight's start against the Yokohama Bay Stars, followed by Tsuyoshi Shimoyanagi on Wednesday and Yasutomo Kubo on Thursday.

Atsushi Nomi was originally scheduled to start Thursday's game, but will now likely get a start on the 18th against the Yomiuri Giants.  After that, Nomi could get another start on the 23rd (vs Chunichi) on 4 days of rest.

And despite Kyuji Fujikawa faltering against the Swallows during his outing on the 11th, the Tigers still plan on using Fujikawa in the 8th inning in necessary (and assuming he's up to it).
