Yasutomo Kubo (returning from the flu) joined the Ni-gun team for workouts at Naruohama today.

Like Alex Ramirez (YOK), Matt Murton might be able to start the season off the bench as a pinch-hitter. One team official also told reporters that Murton had recovered to the point where if this were the middle of the season, he would be playing.

===

With Kubo recovering from the flu, the Tigers may turn to Hiroyuki Kobayashi to temporarily pick up some of the slack in the starting rotation.

Kobayashi is scheduled to start a Ni-gun game against Softbank at Naruohama on Sunday.

Kazuya Tsutsui (returning from the flu) worked out with the Ni-gun team at Koshien on Friday.  He also managed to throw in the bullpen.
