[6/24/2018] Ryosuke Hirata sits out a game

Ryosuke Hirata was hit by a pitch on near his right knee during a game against the Yokohama Bay Stars on June 23. He did not participate in pre-game practices and was left out of the starting line-up on June 24.

The Chunichi Dragons did not want to push Hirata because he had problems with his right knee last year. Hirata is hoping to return to the starting line-up on June 26.
