Masahiro Araki fouled a pitch off his left calf during a game against the Yokohama Bay Stars on August 7 and suffered a bruise. He aggravated it while playing defense in the second inning of Saturday’s game against the Hiroshima Carp at Nagoya Dome — he was replaced by Anderson Hernandez after Brad Eldred’s at bat. The Chunichi Dragons are planning to take him off the active roster.
[UPDATE 8/28 @ 9:24pm]
Araki aggravated both his left calf and his lower back (chronic). He was treated at a hospital after he was removed from Saturday’s game against the Carp. It is uncertain if he will be able to return to the active roster this season.
