Chunichi Dragons

Wei-Ying Chen could get his first Ichi-gun start this season on either the 4th or 5th (both games against the Yakult Swallows).  Chen was added to the active roster today.

Hanshin Tigers

If Atsushi Nomi wins his start against the Giants, it'll be his 8th straight victory against them (going back to his first victory on 7/19/2009).  And that will tie the franchise record set by Shigeru Kobayashi in 1979.

Yomiuri Giants

Tetsuya Utsumi's start on 5/4 has been pushed back to the 5/6 (vs Chunichi Dragons).  Possible starters for tomorrow's game include Hideki Asai, Kentaro Nishimura, and Jonathan Albaladejo.


The Giants will place 119 player caps on display (to show fans what the players, coaches, staff have written on their caps) as part of Adidas Day on 5/5.  Fans will also be able to write their own messages on a giants Giants' cap as well.
