Kenshin Kawakami is scheduled to toss five innings against the Rakuten Eagles (at Nagoya Dome) on March 23.


Sponichi notes that the Dragons could go with Kazuki Yoshimi, Kawakami, and Masahiro Yamamoto for their first three games of the regular season.


The Dragons decided today to give 1st round draft pick Shuhei Takahashi more playing time by temporarily dropping him to Ni-gun.  Takahashi looked over-matched his last two games: 0-for-9 with 5 strikeouts, two ground ball outs, two fly ball outs.
