Yuki Saito has spent most of the past two seasons off the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters’ ichi-gun roster and with the farm team. His poor showing so far this year makes one wonder just how many days he’ll spend with the top team going forward.

Saito (0-1, 8.22 ERA) allowed three runs in 4⅓ innings against the Chiba Lotte Marines in his first start of the season on April 2. He was pulled from his latest turn, April 17 against the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles, after four Eagles crossed home plate in his 3⅓ innings.
