Softbank Hawks

Orix Buffaloes

  • Francisco Caraballo could earn about twenty million yen in performance bonuses based on how he is playing right now. Source: Sanspo 5/12/2015

Nippon Ham Fighters

  • Victor Garate will be shifted to the bullpen for the time being. Source: Nikkan Sports 5/12/2015
  • Hideki Kuriyama is still concerned about Shohei Otani's condition and wants to maintain some flexibility when it comes to his pitching schedule. He does not want to be too lenient, and will most likely switch Otani's starts back and forth from six to seven days of rest, depending on condition. That could give the pitcher a shot at pitching and hitting in the same game during the Inter-league Hanshin series that begins on June 5 at Koshien.

Chiba Lotte Marines

  • Pitching coach Eiji Ochiai is planning to reward pitchers out of his own pocket if they do well at the plate during Inter-league road games against Central League teams. Sac bunts will be worth 5,000 yen, singles 10,000 yen, doubles 30,000 yen, home runs 100,000 yen, and 10,000 yen for each RBI. Source: Daily Sports 5/12/2015

Rakuten Eagles

  • First round draft pick Tomohiro Anraku is set to make his Ni-gun debut on May 14 against Nippon Ham. Source: Sanspo 5/12/2015

Softbank Hawks

  • Dae-Ho Lee hit a home run in his fourth straight game on May 10. Julio Zuleta was the last player in franchise history to accomplish the feat (September 14-23, 2004). Lee joined Nobuhiko Matsunaka (July 19-23, 2004) as the only players to accomplish the feat at YafuOku Dome. Lee also extended his hitting streak to ten games on May 10. He recorded at least one extra base hit in each game and is one game away from tying Koji Akiyama's 1994 NPB record of eleven consecutive games with an extra base hit (September 17-October 7).

Nippon Ham Fighters

Chiba Lotte Marines

  • Brothers Yuta Omine and Shota Omine made the starting line-up on May 10. They became the first pitcher and position player brother combo to make the starting line-up for the same team in the same game since Akihiro Shimada (pitcher) and Munehiko Shimada (catcher) on April 25, 1986.
