Saburo (LOT) left Thursday night's game after he started feeling tightness in his right hamstring while running the bases in the 8th inning.  The injury doesn't appear to be serious, but the team also didn't want to take any chances.

In other injury-related news for the Marines:

While not exactly new news, there is a mini update on Takashi Ogino.  Seems he was at Chiba Marine Stadium on Thursday to give the coaches a better idea of where he was in his rehab.  He ran in front of the Ichi-gun trainer and later told reporters that while he wasn't feeling any pain, he also didn't have the strength to run at full speed.  And as with other updates on Ogino, it seems the club still has no idea when he'll be able to return.
