Eigoro Mogi did not play in today’s Hanshin Tigers game at Koshien Stadium because of pain in his right elbow. He hurt the elbow when he fouled off a pitch during his second at bat in yesterday’s game against the Tigers. He remained in the game but was replaced by a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning.
Mogi was sent back to Sendai today. The Rakuten Eagles are not planning to take him off the active roster since they have the next four days off.
