C. Kaneko, Hayato Terahara, Mitsutaka Goto, Hirotoshi Kitagawa, and Koji Yamasaki all rejoined the Ichi-gun team in Kochi on Monday.

Cha-Seung Baek, Masato Fukae, and 2nd round draft pick Takuya Shimada were sent down to Ni-gun.

Akinobu Okada is hoping Terahara will be, at the very latest, ready to pitch either during their opening series against the Softbank Hawks, or during a three game series against the Nippon Ham Fighters that begins on April 3.

Dae-Ho Lee could get up to three at bats during the two games they play against the Chiba Lotte Marines on Wednesday and Thursday.
