[5/21/2017] Kazuya Fukuura taken off active roster

Kazuya Fukuura was taken off the active roster today with tightness in the back of his right thigh. He developed the tightness while running out a grounder to third in the fourth inning of yesterday’s (May 20) game against the Rakuten Eagles. His condition is not considered serious, but the Chiba Lotte Marines decided to take him off the active roster because he has had leg problems in the past and they were concerned he might aggravate the hamstring.
