Ginjiro Sumitani (SEI) had surgery on his left elbow in March and finally got around to playing in a Ni-gun rehab game yesterday against Lotte.

Ginjiro entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the 5th and flied out to second.  He then stayed in the game and took over as catcher in the bottom of the 5th.  Ginjiro was apparently replaced by Tomohito Yoneno in the 6th.
