[10/1/2018] Shoichi Ino has right elbow surgery

Shoichi Ino felt some tightness in his right elbow after a start against the Yomiuri Giants on September 14. The Yokohama Bay Stars did not think it was serious at the time, but tests later revealed a bone spur. They opted for early surgery with hopes that he will be 100 percent for the 2019 season.

The Bay Stars announced today that Ino had surgery to clean his right elbow at a hospital in Yokohama. There were no complications during the procedure.
