Nippon Ham Fighters

Yuki Saito joined the Ichi-gun team for workouts on Tuesday and threw about forty-pitches in the bullpen.  He is slated to start Wednesday's game against Orix at Sapporo Dome.

The Fighters apparently decided to part ways with Ryo Sakakibara because they have no room for him and feel he is still young to succeed and find other opportunities to pitch.  He was also open to going to another team via trade during the season for playing time.

Softbank Hawks

Hayato Terahara and Tadashi Settsu are scheduled to make starts against Seibu on October 2 and 3, respectively.  If necessary, they will be available to pitch in relief during the last two games of the season against Nippon Ham on October 4 and 5.
