[5/8/2016] Hiroki Kuroda taken off active roster

Hiroki Kuroda was taken off the active roster today with a cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerve in the neck, he developed the condition when he was hit in the head by a line drive off Rusty Ryal’s bat in 2009) and pain in his right shoulder. The problem in his neck made him overcompensate and messed with his mechanics, which led to pain in his shoulder. There is a chance he might be able to return in the minimum ten days.
