[4/18/2017] Kazuhiro Hatakeyama hurts left leg

Kazuhiro Hatakeyama hurt his left leg while running to first on a grounder to second in the second inning of tonight’s game against the Yomiuri Giants. He was replaced on defense in the bottom half of the inning.

After the game, Hatakeyama had his left calf taped up. He told reporters he had been feeling tightness in the area since opening day, but felt good the last few days, until he felt a pop tonight. He thinks he suffered a strain. He will probably be taken off the active roster.

[UPDATE 4/22 @ 6:49pm]

Hatakeyama was diagnosed with a strain in his left gastrocnemius (calf area). It is uncertain how much time he will miss.

Atsushi Ugumori: Did You Know

Walk-off hits:

  • April 2, 2017 vs Yokohama, pinch-hit, grand slam
  • April 13, 2017 vs Chunichi, pinch-hit, RBI hit to left

Ugumori is the first player in Swallows history to record two pinch-hit walk-off hits in one season since Masaaki Iwashita in 1982 and the first right-handed player since Yasumitsu Toyoda in 1968. The last Yakult player to record two pinch-hit walk-off hits in one month was Tsutomu Wakamatsu in June 1977.
