There is a good chance Yasuhiro Ogawa (Yakult) will start the first game of the three game set against Taiwan.  Hiroshima's 1st round draft pick Daichi Osera could also get a start during the series.  Seiichi Uchikawa (Softbank), Nobuhiro Matsuda (Softbank), and Motohiro Shima (Rakuten) could round out the veterans of the group.
