...According to the press, it seems tickets for the Eagles series against the Yakult Swallows (12th and 13th) are selling extremely well, leaving only about 2,000 tickets available for either game.

    According to Nikkan Sports (paper edition) on Thursday, it’s his left elbow, not knee.

    左ひじ内側側副靱帯に再建及び骨棘除去手術を行う。

    The article you link to also says “ひじ” not “ひざ.”

      Hmm… I must have been thinking about another player at the time. Under normal circumstances, there’s no way I mistake “ひじ” and “ひざ”.

      What a silly and careless mistake to make.
