Tanishige told reporters that he tweaked his left elbow while swinging the bat.  It's still not certain if there was an underlying injury before hand, but whatever it was, something happened when he swung and missed a pitch during his second at bat in the 4th inning.

Motonobu Tanishige was taken out last night's game against the Yakult Swallows in the bottom of the 4th inning due to an injury to his left arm.  Seems he originally injured his arm in a previous game and aggravated it during the game last night.
