Hanshin Tigers

The Tigers will probably add Shunsuke to the active roster today.  He also played in a Ni-gun game yesterday against Hiroshima (started in center and batted second) and went 1-for-2.  In order to make room for Shunsuke, the Tigers will likely take Kai-Wen Cheng off the active roster.


Ikusei pitcher Koji Yoshioka started a Ni-gun game against Hiroshima today and allowed a run on 5 hits over 7 innings of work.  He also struck out 10.

Yomiuri Giants

Both Alex Ramirez and Saburo Omura feel Hisayoshi Chono has what it takes to bat clean-up.

Ramirez: He has everything he needs to bat fourth.  If I were manager I'd definitely give him the clean-up spot.

Omura: He's doing the kind of hitting I'd like to do in his second year.  He's using his hips to hit and the way he uses his right arm is amazing.
