Atsushi Nomi (HAN) is currently penciled in for tonight's start against the Yomiuri Giants on 2-days of rest and a start against the Chunichi Dragons on the 23rd on 4 days of rest.

Takumi Akiyama (HAN) will likely get a start against the Yomiuri Giants on the 20th.  Akiyama's first pro career start on 8/21 came against the Giants.  Akiyama lost that start after he gave up 4 runs (all earned) over 6 innings of work.  Since then, he has rattled off 3 straight wins.
