Haruhiro Hamaguchi was scratched from the Samurai Japan roster on March 2 because of discomfort in his left shoulder. Samurai Japan manager Atsunori Inaba later told reporters he made the call because he did not want to risk Hamaguchi’s future by keeping him on the roster.
[UPDATE 3/17 @ 2:19pm]
Hamaguchi is not expected to make the opening day starting rotation because his left shoulder is still not fully healed.0 Comments
