[3/11/2017] Masataka Yoshida misses game after fouling ball off leg

Masataka Yoshida fouled a ball off his right leg during yesterday’s game against the Yomiuri Giants. He was held out of starting line-up against Yomiuri today. He did not participate in on-field practices and instead used the indoor facilities for workouts and treatment.

There are currently no plans for him to visit a hospital. He most likely did not suffer any broken bones. There is still some swelling.
