[8/7/2016] Masahiro Araki leaves game after fouling pitch off left leg

Masahiro Araki fouled a ball off the area under his left knee (perhaps the calf) during his second at bat in Sunday’s (August 7) game against the Yokohama Bay Stars at Yokohama Stadium. He was able to finish the at bat (flied out to left), but was replaced on defense in the bottom-half of the inning.

Araki told reporters he was planning to play the entire game, but was told after he returned to the dugout that he was going to be substituted.
