[9/10/2016] Injury Updates: Drew Naylor, Ricardo Nanita

The media learned on September 10 that Drew Naylor is again having problems with his right shoulder. The pain returned after his last appearance on September 3 against Ni-gun Orix. He is not expected to pitch in any more games this season.

Naylor would like to return to Chunichi next year. He is also looking forward to the possibility of playing for Australia during the 2017 World Baseball Classic.

Ricardo Nanita (left elbow) may not be able to make it back to the active roster before the end of the season. He is still unable to swing the bat or throw the ball at full strength. He was hoping to play in his first rehab game on September 9, but will now most likely have to wait until the last series of the Ni-gun season on September 20. Assuming no problems, he might be able to make it back to the active roster in time for the last two home games of the season on September 24 and 25 (against Hanshin).

Nanita would also like to return to Chunichi next year.
