There is no timetable on when Uchikawa might be able to start running workouts.  Depending on how things go, he might not be able to return to the active roster until after the regular season resumes on June 27. Source: Sports Hochi 5/31/2014 ... There is a chance Uchikawa could return during Inter-league play, since the Hawks are currently scheduled to play their last four games on the road against Yakult (June 17, 19) and Yomiuri (June 21, 22).  Since the games are at Central League stadiums, the designated hitter rule will be in effect.
