Kodai Senga was taken off the active roster today with tightness in his right elbow. The Softbank Hawks decided to give him extra rest by skipping him once in the rotation.
[UPDATE 4/9 @ 10:53pm]
Pitching coach Shinji Kurano told reporters today that Senga’s condition was not serious and that they were planning to skip him once in the rotation. He also said that if the team had a full schedule this week (five games instead of six), they might have kept him on the active roster. Senga is currently traveling with the team.
