Orix Buffaloes: April 14, 2010

by on Apr.14, 2010 @ 8:42 pm, under NPB

...Greg LaRocca was diagnosed with a fracture in his right pinky finger on Tuesday.  LaRocca was hit by a pitch during a game against the Rakuten Eagles on the 10th.  He was checked out at a hospital in Sendai and was told he just had a bruise.  LaRocca was re-tested on Tuesday and a CT scan revealed the fracture.

LaRocca took pre-game batting and fielding on Wednesday and was in the starting line-up as a DH.  It seems the team has taken a "get better while you play" approach.
