Nippon Ham Fighters

Shohei Otani threw forty-three pitches in the bullpen before Sunday's game against the Rakuten Eagles.  He spent the entire session pitching out of the set position.

Otani also made into the game as a defensive substitution in left in the top of the 9th.  He notched his seventh assist of the year by throwing Ginji out at home plate and led off the bottom-half of the inning with his first hit in sixteen trips to the plate.
