Nishioka played in a Ni-gun rehab game against Softbank on Friday.  He was the starting designated hitter and batted lead-off.  He went 0-for-3: Ks, Ks, G4. The Tigers are planning to give Nishioka at least about twenty trips to the plate before considering him for the active roster.  He will also have to be ready to play defense.
