Seibu Lions: March 23, 2012

Hideaki Wakui start (vs Yakult at Jingu) was rained out today.  With rain in the forecast again tomorrow, the coaches decided to have Wakui pitch in a Ni-gun game at Seibu Dome against the Rakuten Eagles on Saturday.  He is expected to pitch around three innings.

Kazuhisa Ishii could be used in a set-up role until he is needed back in the starting rotation -- the rotation will most likely be expanded back to six pitchers some time in mid-April.
