[6/27/2017] Motohiro Shima took batted ball off left foot

Motohiro Shima took a batted ball off his left foot during yesterday’s (June 26) game against the Orix Buffaloes.

The incident took place in the top of the third inning. Orix’s Kenya Wakatsuki fouled off a pitch that hit Shima on the left foot. He remained in the game until he was replaced on defense in the fifth inning. He was taken to a hospital in Sendai and diagnosed with a bruise on the top of his left foot.

Shima will most likely be left out of the starting line-up against Orix on June 28.
