[4/20/2017] Hisayoshi Chono may have some lower body discomfort

Hisayoshi Chono left the Yakult game on April 19 early (replaced on defense in the fifth inning) because of discomfort in his lower body (legs). However, he has also been struggling at the plate: he got the start in right in the season’s first twelve games, but was then bumped to the bench, where he made three appearances as a pinch-hitter. He returned to the starting line-up on April 19. His early removal on April 19 may have been a mix of issues.

[4/19/2017] Hayato Takagi leaves early after hurting hand

Hayato Takagi left tonight’s game against the Yakult Swallows after suffering an injury during his at bat in the second inning.

Takagi attempted a sacrifice bunt with runners on first and second and one out in the second inning. The ball made contact near his right hand and rolled into play. He was unable to run to first. The catcher fielded the ball and completed a 2-5-3 double play to end the inning.

Takagi also took a batted ball near his chest in the first inning. He still managed to recover and throw Tetsuto Yamada out at first for the last out of the inning.
