Nippon Ham Fighters: July 17, 2010

...Yu Darvish topped out 156km/h this afternoon and set a new career domestic record.

...Yuya Ishii injured the adductor muscle in his left leg while pitching in the 8th inning this afternoon.  He is scheduled to get his leg checked out at a hospital tomorrow.

...Either Masaru Takeda's injury is a little more severe than the Fighters expected, or they just figured they'd take him off the active roster to give him time to rest since he probably won't be pitching again before the All-Star break.  I'm guessing it's more the latter than the former.
