[9/19/2018] Hanshin Tigers uncertain when Messenger will be ready to return

Randy Messenger was taken off the active roster on September 12 after he gave up four runs one five hits over 3.1 innings of work. Messenger asked to be taken off the active roster for some time to make adjustments at Ni-gun and to deal with some pain (possibly from fatigue) in his back and right shoulder. The Hanshin Tigers are still uncertain when Messenger will be able to return to the active roster.
