Hanshin Tigers: May 4, 2010

by on May.04, 2010 @ 2:29 pm, under NPB

...Kenji Jojima has 7 hits in his last 12 trips to the plate.  He also became the 14th player in NPB history to get hit by a pitch 100 times in their career on Monday.

...Naoto Tsuru's next start could come on 5/9 (Atsushi Nomi's spot) against the Hiroshima Carp.

...Speaking of Nomi, it seems he might be out for about 2 months, putting his return somewhere in early July.  Nomi's injury now means that the Tigers three main starters are out of commission: Yuya Ando, Minoru Iwata, and now Nomi.
