[7/9/2016] Hanshin Tigers take Shintaro Fujinami off the active roster

Shintaro Fujinami was taken off the active roster today since the Hanshin Tigers want to give Fujinami some time to rest his elbow and shoulder before the All-Star break. The pitcher is also coming off a start in which he threw a career high 161 pitches. His previous high of 152 was set during a start against Yokohama at Koshien Stadium on July 24, 2015. The last Hanshin pitcher to throw 160 or more pitches was Kei Igawa (164) against Yomuri at Koshien Stadium on August 29, 2001.
