[10/27/2017] Taisuke Yamaoka out with shoulder inflammation

Taisuke Yamaoka made the Samurai Japan roster for the 2017 ENEOS Asia Professional Baseball Championship. However, his name was withdrawn after he was diagnosed with inflammation in his right shoulder cuff during a physical for the tournament. Yamaoka was participating in fall practices in Osaka with hopes staying on the roster, but the Buffaloes determined he was not going to be ready.

Samurai Japan announced on October 27 that Seibu’s Shogo Noda will replace Yamaoka on the roster.
