Yomiuri Giants

  • Tomoyuki Sugano (right middle finger) joined the Ichi-gun team for workouts on Sunday for the first time in about a month. He is currently slated to start a game on the 10th against Hanshin at Koshien. Source: Sponichi 9/7/2014
  • Kan Otake left Saturday's game against the Yakult Swallows after seventy-one pitches. Tatsunori Hara told reporters there was no reason to be concerned, but it's possible Otake felt discomfort somewhere in his upper body, perhaps his right shoulder, since he has had problems with it in the past.
