[8/20/2018] Takayuki Kajitani has shoulder cleaning surgery

The Yokohama Bay Stars announced today that Takayuki Kajitani had surgery to clean his right shoulder at a hospital in Yokohama.

Kajitani suffered a fracture in his right ulna after he was hit by a pitch during a game against the Yomiuri Giants on August 1. He may have decided to have surgery on his shoulder after realizing his chances for a return from the fracture this season were low.
