Takero Okaijma is planning to have surgery on his left shoulder some time earlier next week. He will most likely require about six months for a full recovery.
Okajima was examined at a hospital in Chiba on February 6 and joined Ni-gun camp in Kumejima on February 8. He has had problems with his shoulder since he dislocated it during a game against Orix on July 23, 2017.
