Kyuji Fujikawa was set to make an appearance during an exhibition game against the Shikoku Island League All-Stars on July 25, but remained in the bullpen because he did not have enough time to prepare. He did toss a bullpen session during the game: he threw forty-six pitches to a squatting catcher. After the game, he spent some time signing autographs.
NPB teams have until July 31 to sign players. The game on July 25 was the last chance Fujikawa had to pitch before the deadline.
