Eigoro Mogi did not play in today’s Hanshin Tigers game at Koshien Stadium because of pain in his right elbow. He hurt the elbow when he fouled off a pitch during his second at bat in yesterday’s game against the Tigers. He remained in the game but was replaced by a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning.
Mogi was sent back to Sendai today. The Rakuten Eagles are not planning to take him off the active roster since they have the next four days off.
[UPDATE 6/21 @ 1:00am]
Mogi was taken off the active roster on June 19.
[UPDATE 6/22 @ 6:33pm]
The Eagles announced on June 21 that Mogi was diagnosed with a bone contusion on his right olecranon after visiting a hospital in Sendai. Masataka Nashida is hoping he will be able to return in about two weeks.
[UPDATE 7/4 @ 11:50pm]
Nashida is still not sure when Mogi will be ready to return to the active roster. He is not happy about the rule that will keep him out for ten games after the break if he has to skip the All-Star series.

[UPDATE 7/27 @ 12:40am]
The media learned on July 25 that Mogi might be able to rejoin the Ichi-gun team on July 30. He is expected to play in at least two rehab games at Ni-gun beforehand. If he does make it back to the active roster on July 30, it will most likely be as a designated hitter, since his throwing is still only at about fifty percent (he is playing catch at ten to twenty meters).
[UPDATE 7/27 @ 12:35pm]
Mogi played in his first Ni-gun rehab game on July 26. He started at designated hitter against Yomiuri and batted third. He went 0-for-3: G3, G3, BB, G3.

Eigoro Mogo recorded an inside-the-park three-run home run down 5-4 in the top of the ninth on Thursday night against the Softbank Hawks. Yuki Yanagita attempted a sliding catch on a fly ball to center, but the ball got by him and rolled all the way to the wall. The Eagles ended up winning the game, 7-5.
Mogi is the first rookie to hit an inside-the-park home runs since Tomochika Tsuboi (Hanshin) on July 4, 1998, and the first rookie in the Pacific League since Masayuki Shiomura (Kintetsu) on June 6, 1956. Only three other Rakuten players have hit inside-the-park home runs: Manabu Satake on September 27, 2005; Kensuke Uchimura on September 24, 2011; and Hiroaki Shimauchi on July 7, 2013.One Comment

Mogi has played in five Ni-gun rehab games as of July 29. He was used as a late-inning defensive replacement at short in his first two games (no plate appearances), then went 0-for-6 with two strikeouts in the next two games with starts at short. He might be ready to rejoin the active roster in early August.
