Akihiro Higashide (HIR) was taken off the active roster today due to right elbow pains -- he start feeling pain in the joint on Saturday and did not participate in team practice yesterday.  The decision to remove Higashide from the active roster was made after he sat down with the coaches / manager.  This will be the first time Higashide comes off the active roster since 8/2005.

Higashide is set to get his elbow examined at a hospital within the next day or so.
