[7/26/2016] Tsuyoshi Nishioka to have surgery

Tsuyoshi Nishioka told fans through his Facebook page that he was going to have surgery to treat his Achilles tendon on July 26. It came down to two options: either let the injury heal naturally or have surgery. He seriously considered letting the injury heal naturally, while also thinking that his career might be over, but team officials pushed surgery with a focus to return healthy in 2017.

Nishioka thanked fans for their support and understanding. He also explained that their comments helped play a role in his decision to have surgery.
