[9/21/2017] Yuki Yanagita taken off active roster with strained right side

The Softbank Hawks took Yuki Yanagita off the active roster today after he was diagnosed with strains in his right abdominal oblique and right intercostal muscles. He will most likely require about three weeks for a full recovery.

Yanagita was examined at a hospital in Sapporo this morning. He was seen leaving the team hotel with a trainer at around 9:30am and returned about two hours later. He will spend the next few days getting treatment at a hospital in the Kanto region. Once the treatment is done, he will head to the Chikugo facilities to start a rehab program.

[9/18/2017] Livan Moinelo leaves game with elbow tightness

Livan Moinelo left tonight’s game against the Seibu Lions with tightness in his left elbow.

Moinelo took the moun/d in the tenth inning and gave up a lead-off double to Sosuke Genda. He retired Hideto Asamura on a fly ball to left, then walked Ryo Sakata. Genda stole third to put runners on first and third. Moinelo allowed the game-tying run to score when he surrendered a single to right to Tomoya Mori. Moinelo was removed from the game as a precaution after throwing three pitches to the next batter, Yuji Kaneko.

Moinelo is scheduled to get the elbow checked out at a hospital in Sapporo tomorrow (September 19).
