[8/2/2016] Yuji Nishino out with elbow inflammation

Yuji Nishino was examined at a hospital in Funabashi, Chiba on August 1. Tests did not reveal any bone or ligament abnormalities. The pain in his right elbow was chalked up to inflammation and fatigue.

Nishino will be shut down for about a week. His goal is to return to the active roster before the end of the month.
