[10/18/2016] Kenta Imamiya to have elbow surgery

The media learned on October 17 that Kenta Imamiya will have surgery to remove loose bodies from his right elbow. The loose bodies were discovered during the off-season last year. He skipped surgery and was fine until the pain got worse toward the end of the season. He will most likely require two to three months for a full recovery. He should be fine for the start of the season next year.
