[5/4/2016] Naoto Watanabe taken off active roster

Naoto Watanabe was taken off the active roster on May 4 because the pain in his left hamstring was not improving. He first hurt his hamstring during a game against Softbank on April 30. The Lions decided to take Watanabe off the active roster because, even though he was able to hit, he could not run or play defense.
