[6/16/2016] Ryosuke Hirata has pain in left leg

Ryosuke Hirata was left out of the starting line-up tonight against Lotte at Nagoya Dome because of discomfort in his leg. He visited a hospital for tests during practices and returned to crutches (he was dragging his left leg). The Chunichi Dragons could end up taking him off the active roster tomorrow.

Hirata had problems with his left hip in April. He more recently complained of lower back pain.
