Shinnosuke Ogasawara: Did You Know

Ogasawara picked up a win against the Yomiuri Giants on June 24. It was the second time he recorded a victory against the Giants before the age of twenty (two wins, three games, two starts). He is the first pitcher to accomplish the feat since Yoshinori (2008-2009), the first pitcher in franchise history since Shinji Imanaka (1990), and the first pitcher to win two games without suffering any losses against the Giants since Yutaka Enatsu (1967).

[6/18/2017] Ryosuke Hirata taken off active roster

Ryosuke Hirata was taken off the active roster today. The Chunichi Dragons told the media it was due to discomfort in his right knee. He has not been examined at a hospital.

Added additional information on 6/19 @ 1:41pm

[UPDATE 6/21 @ 11:55am]

Hirata was examined at a hospital on June 20. He wore a brace when he visited Nagoya Stadium after his examination. He told reporters he still felt some pain when moving his right knee in certain directions, but was otherwise okay. He also told reporters he had his knee drained and need to keep the brace on for a couple weeks. He could end up missing the first-half of the season.

Source: Sports Hochi 6/21/2017, Daily Sports 6/21/2017

[UPDATE 6/21 @ 9:29pm]

Hirata hurt his right knee when he slid head-first into home plate during a game against Seibu on June 17. He has been good about avoiding head-first slides because he hurt his right shoulder three or four times. He had to be told by Hiromitsu Ochiai not to do it. But in the game against Seibu, he let his emotions get the better of him. He has no regrets, since it happened in the heat of the moment, but he also never wants to do another head-first slide again.
