Chiba Lotte Marines

  • Toshiaki Imae (lower back tightness) could play in a Ni-gun rehab game on Saturday.  Depending on how things go, he could make it back to the active roster some time in May.  The Marines are taking their time with Imae because they want to make sure he is 100 percent when he returns.
