...Andy Phillips was checked out at a hospital yesterday and diagnosed with what seems to be a torn left oblique muscle (左外腹斜筋の部分断裂).  He won't be able to move around for at least 2 weeks and will require 6 weeks for a full recovery.

...A children's book put together by Hisashi Iwakuma, his wife Madoka, and his daughter will be hitting bookstore shelves on June 8th for 1,050 yen.  The book is titled Iwakuma-kuma to kizuna on ehon (イワクマクマときずなのえほん).

...The Eagles are selling a limited edition t-shirt with Mary Brown reeling in a Carp streamer.  Seems it's the Eagles answer to the Carp limited edition t-shirt that was designed for the Eagles / Hiroshima series a couple weeks back.  It seems the online store is already out of the t-shirt.  According to the Eagles' website, the t-shirt will also be available for purchase from the official team stores beginning on the 29th.

...The Eagles have posted more information about various events they will be holding during their series against the Hiroshima Carp (5/29, 30) and Hanshin Tigers (6/1, 2).
