Nippon Ham Fighters: April 13, 2010

by on Apr.13, 2010 @ 10:09 pm, under NPB

...Atsushi Ugumori was taken off the active roster on Tuesday with a fracture in his left hand (ring finger).  Seems he'll be out anywhere from 4-5 weeks.  Seems he fractured his left hand while trying to get back to second base during a pick-off play on the 11th against the Softbank Hawks.

...Hichori Morimoto could be making his comeback to Ichi-gun shortly.  He played in a Ni-gun game on Saturday against Lotte and went 0-for-3.  That could spell trouble for Sho Nakata.

...The Fighters are giving Hirotoshi Masui another chance: they're going to give him another start on the 20th against the Orix Buffaloes.

...Atsunori Inaba could return to the starting line-up on Wednesday.

...Takahiro Nishijima will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch on Thursday.

...The Fighters announced that Ryo Tamura (from the comedy duo London Bots #1, #2) will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch on 5/1.  He'll also be taking part in a number of fan-related events at the stadium to help sell his new book (田村亮のパパ日記).

...Mari Yaguchi will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at a Ni-gun game on the 20th against Yomiuri.
