Tough break for Kenta Imamiya

by on Aug.18, 2010 @ 8:21 pm, under NPB

The Softbank Hawks announced that their first round pick, Kenta Imamiya, fractured his left ulnar styloid process (left wrist) and will be out about 4 weeks.  Imamiya apparently suffered the fracture while playing defense in a Ni-gun game against Hiroshima on the 15th.  Imamiya will not undergo surgery.

Moving forward, Imamiya will still attend team practice sessions, but will stay away from any excerises that might put strain on the fracture.
