Kazuhisa Ishii (SEI) will get tonight's start against the Orix Buffaloes (seems he might be facing Chihiro Kaneko, should be a fun game to watch). And there's a chance that he could get another start on the 20th against the Softbank Hawks. Depending on how the team does, there's a chance Ishii could be on the mound for the league clinching game.
In other team-related news:
Takayuki Kishi is slated for a rehab start against Ni-gun Rakuten today. Since this will be his first start in about two months, he'll have a pitch count limit of 50.
UPDATE on Kishi's start (11:19pm): Kishi gave up a run on 2 hits hits over 3 innings of work. He also struck out 5 and threw a total 45 pitches. Kishi could rejoin the active roster as early as the 23rd (final home game of the year).
