Kazuki Yoshimi to start on the 16th?

Kazuki Yoshimi (CHU) was taken off the active roster on the 5th due to unspecified reasons, although it seems it had something to do with his shoulder or something not feeling right.  In any case, it now appears as though he might be ready to return to the active roster in time for a start on 16th against the Hiroshima Carp (the final game of a three game series).

With Wei-Ying Chen and Daisuke Yamai likely pitching the first two games against the Carp, that would allow the same three to start games against the Hanshin Tigers next week on 6 days of rest.
