The Softbank Hawks announced earlier today that Akihiro Yanase underwent surgery on his right elbow (MCL tear and arthroscopic surgery to remove some loose fragments).  Yanase will remain in the hospital until the 12th and will then begin his rehab in Fukuoka.  Yanase had surgery on his right elbow in September last year and has not had any appearances at Ni-gun or Ichi-gun this season.
