Nippon Ham Fighters

1st round draft pick Shohei Otani (right cheek incomplete fracture) will rest through to today.  He could return to workouts on Sunday.  While he was scratched from a previously scheduled start against Seibu at Sapporo Dome on the 15th, he could still make it into the line-up as a position player as early as the 14th.
