Other pitchers that need extra rest or have yet to nail down a spot in the rotation, like Shohei Tateyama, Taichi Ishiyama, and Masato Furuno, would get spot starts to fill the gaps. They are also planning to go with eight relievers to offset the workload for each pitcher. The Swallows play thirty-three of their next thirty-six games at outdoor stadiums, including twenty-six straight between August 11 and September 10. Source: Sanspo 7/28/2015 ...

The base rotation could include Ogawa, Ishikawa, and Arakaki. Tateyama could pitch on ten days of rest because he is coming off an injury. Pitchers like Yamanaka, Naruse, Ishiyama, and Furuno could compete for starts to fill the gaps. Source: Sponichi 7/28/2015
