[4/15/2016] Kazuhiro Hatakeyama will continue rehabbing back at Ni-gun

Kazuhiro Hatakeyama (back tightness) resumed batting practice indoors on April 13. He took thirty-two swings and hit one over the fence during outdoor batting practice on April 14. The Swallows are planning to take Hatakeyama off the active roster because they want to avoid rushing him back to the line-up.

Shinichi Takeuchi will most likely take Hatakeyama’s spot on the active roster.
