Alex Guerrero did not play in tonight’s game against the Yakult Swallows at Jingu Stadium because of some swelling in his right hand. Guerrero was hit by a pitch on his right hand during his at bat in the fifth inning of a game on July 26. He was later taken to a hospital and diagnosed with a bruise (no broken bones). He is considered day-to-day.
Guerrero did not take pre-game batting practice. He did play catch and take fielding practice in the outfield.
