There was a press conference on Saturday to announce that Kazuki Yoshimi's "garlic injections" were not against doping rules set forth by the league.

League medical chairman Atsushi Masujima said, "There was justifiable cause for the use of injections."

According to the medical reports that were submitted to the NPB by the Chunichi Dragons, the doctor that examined Yoshimi had a medical reason for giving Yoshimi garlic injections and that the injections weren't necessarily provided as a means to help boost his energy.

Masujima added, "He did receive similar treatments on a number of separate occasions, but it was not something that was happening on any frequent / regular basis."
