Hirotoshi Masui to get some extra work back at Ni-gun

by on Sep.06, 2010 @ 2:39 pm, under NPB

It seems the Fighters decided to take Hirotoshi Masui (HAM) off the active roster after he gave up 4 runs (all earned) on 5 hits and 4 walks over 2.1 innings of work yesterday.  Masui is also 0-2 in 6 starts since his last victory on 5/27 (vs Chunichi) -- 22.2 IP, 30 H, 11 BB, 15 R, 15 ER.

The Fighters will now likely call up Mitsuo Yoshikawa to strengthen the bullpen and give the team 8 relievers.
