[4/24/2016] Wladimir Balentien tweaks left leg while running down fly ball

Wladimir Balentien got the start in left and batted fourth against Chunichi at Nagoya Dome today. He tweaked his left leg (adductor muscle) while chasing down a fly ball hit by Yohei Oshima in the bottom of the first inning. He was taken out of the game as a precaution. He later told reporters he did not think it was a strain and that he should be okay for Tuesday’s game.
