[6/2/2016] Hiroki Uemoto out, Tsuyoshi Nishioka in

Hiroki Uemoto complained of lower back pain during pre-game practices on June 1. He will be taken off the active roster and Tsuyoshi Nishioka (left hamstring) will be called up.

Nishioka may still have some difficulty running, but should not have any problems swinging the bat. If he is unable to play defense, he could still be used as a designated hitter or a bat off the bench.
