[7/31/2016] Chunichi decide not add Hitoshi Tamura to their seventy-man roster

The Chunichi Dragons decided not to add Ikusei player Hitoshi Tamura to their seventy-man roster this year. Tamura would like to continue playing next year. The Dragons are open to keeping their Ikusei contract with the veteran into 2017.

Tamura was released by the Yokohama Bay Stars in October 2015. He signed an Ikusei contract with the Chunichi Dragons in January this year. The organization was hoping to use him as a bat off the bench, but he got hurt during spring camp (right calf strain) and suffered another leg injury in May.
