...Hirotoshi Masui was diagnosed with neuritis in the glenohumeral joint in his right shoulder after getting an MRI at a Tokyo hospital today.  Seems it'll take a few days for his shoulder to heal.

...As mentioned last night, Hirotoshi Masui is scheduled to get his right shoulder checked out today and will most likely be taken off the active roster.

...Yoshio Itoi hit four doubles in his last four consecutive trips to the plate last night.  The last player to hit four doubles in four consecutive trips to the plate was Ichiro Suzuki, back in 1994.  And while it seems he was the 10th player to hit four doubles in one game, he appears to be only the 6th player to hit them in consecutive at bats.

...Atsunori Inaba hit 2 homers last night and now had 6 homers through ten games in June.
