[4/12/2017] Brandon Laird left game on April 9 against HBP

Brandon Laird left Sunday’s (April 9) game against the Orix Buffaloes after he took a pitch off his upper arm in the fifth inning. He was replaced on defense in the bottom half of the inning.

Laird had some difficulty moving his arm immediately after the HBP, but did not miss any games. He blasted his first home run of the year tonight off Softbank’s Shota Takeda.
