[6/15/2016] Seibu Lions to take Takeya Nakamura off active roster

Takeya Nakamura hurt his left hip while playing in a game against the Hiroshima carp at Mazda Stadium on June 15. He most likely suffered the injury in the fifth inning when he banged his left knee as he tagged Yoshihiro Maru out and fell. He remained in the game and batted for himself in the sixth, but was replaced by a pinch-hitter in the eighth because he started feeling pain in his hip.

The Seibu Lions are planning to take Nakamura off the active roster on June 16.
