[3/13/2019] Shinnosuke Abe joins San-gun with calf tightness

Shinnosuke Abe returned to Tokyo on March 12 with tightness in his left calf. He had been traveling with the team and taking things slow, but will join San-gun for workouts today.

Abe is working his way back to catcher this year. He is one of four catchers competing for the everyday Ichi-gun job. This is his second setback. He struggled with back tightness during spring camp. In four exhibition games, he was 1-for-6 with two RBI.
