[5/4/2016] Kosuke Fukudome leaves game with mild tightness in leg

Kosuke Fukudome left tonight’s game against Chunichi on defense in the fourth inning because of mild tightness in his left leg. He missed a few games last month with tightness in his left hamstring and the Tigers were concerned about reinjury.

  • Actually he was never taken off the active roster. He was removed from the starting lineup for several days, though, and came in as a pinch hitter in several of those.

      Indeed. They never took him off the active roster because they didn’t think it was going to take that long.
