The Yomiuri Giants are planning on having Shugo Fuijii and Hideki Asai pitch in a Phoenix League game against Hiroshima on the 12th in order to see whether they are capable for pitching /starting in the First Stage of the Climax Series.

The Giants also sent position players Tetsuya Matsumoto, Takahiro Suzuki, Takayuki Terauchi, and Hiroki Nakazawa to Miyazaki on Saturday in order to give them opportunities to play in 2-3 Phoenix League games.

Incidentally, full-squad workouts for the Giants began today at Tokyo Dome.
