Tadashi Settsu was scratched from his start against the Hiroshima Carp on Friday (Yahoo Dome) because of tightness in his lower back.  Pitching coach Ikuo Takayama told reporters it was not serious and that at worst, he would miss another start.


The San-gun Softbank Hawks play Kyushu Kokusai University and Nippon Bunri University on March 28.  Brad Penny will most likely pitch in one of the two games.


The Hawks announced on Thursday that they will play with the roof open at Yahoo Dome on April 26 (vs Seibu) and May 23 (vs Hiroshima).


Via Sanspo, The Hawks will be holding a public viewing of their game on March 31 at Opsia Misumi in Kagoshima.
