[6/4/2016] Takeya Nakamura has tightness in lower back and legs

Takeya Nakamura was left out of the starting line-up on June 3 against the Hanshin Tigers at Koshien Stadium because of tightness in his lower back and legs.

Nakamura was left out of the starting line-up again today, but did make it into the game as a pinch-hitter.

The Lions do not want to risk losing Nakamura to a more serious injury by having him play defenseĀ in a few Inter-league road games.
