[9/7/2016] Seiichi Uchikawa leaves after fouling pitch off right calf

Seiichi Uchikawa fouled a pitch off his right calf during Wednesday’s game against the Orix Buffaloes at YafuOku Dome and most likely suffered a bruise. The incident took place during his second at bat in the fourth inning. He was later replaced by a pinch-hitter for his fourth at bat in the eighth inning.

The Softbank Hawks are uncertain if Uchikawa will be able to play on Thursday. They are taking a wait-and-see approach.
