Hanshin Tigers

Daiki Enokida was taken off the active roster today.  Said Enokida, "I had my shoulder checked and there were no problems.  I'm not feeling tired either.  So I'll just keep doing what I've been doing."  And Pitching coach Takashi Yamaguchi told reporters that while everyone gets fatigued, the team wanted to be particularly careful with Enokida because it was his first year.

Takumi Akiyama started a Ni-gun game against Chunichi today and gave up 3 runs on 5 hits over 4 innings of work.

The Tigers added Ikusei pitcher Masashi Sajikihara to the 70-man roster today and assigned him the number 79 (from 117).  His new salary will be 6M yen.
