[8/16/2016] Rick van den Hurk’s return pushed back

Rick van den Hurk (fatigue, neck) was scheduled to pitch in a Ni-gun game on August 17 against Hanshin. He was scratched from the start after he spoke to Kimiyasu Kudo on August 15 and indicated that he had some concerns about his condition/progress. He will be reassessed after a week to ten days. He may not be able to return to the active roster until some time in early-September.
