[8/31/2016] Taiga Hirasawa to miss today’s game with fever

Taiga Hirasawa will miss today’s game against the Orix Buffaloes at QVC Marine because he is not feeling well (fever). He never went to the stadium and instead rested at home. The Chiba Lotte Marines are monitoring his condition. They are hoping he will be ready to play against after a full day’s rest. If he needs more time, they may consider taking him off the active roster.
