[9/10/2017] Sho Nakata sits out Sunday’s game

Sho Nakata was hit by a pitch on his left hand during a game against Rakuten on September 7. He was able to play on September 8 and 9, but sat out Sunday’s (September 10) game against Seibu at MetLife Dome because he still had some lingering pain. He was in the dugout for the game.

The Nippon Ham Fighters decided to give Nakata some extra rest because he suffered a fissure fracture under similar circumstances on the same hand in 2013.
