Daisuke Kusano (RAK) apparently suffered an incomplete fracture in his right hand when Hiroyuki Kobayashi (LOT) hit him on the right hand during Sunday's game (8th inning). Kusano will probably need about 3 weeks for a full recovery, meaning he's most likely done for the year.
The Eagles are going through a tough stretch right now with injuries.
Norihiro Nakamura was diagnosed with a right hamstring strain on the 20th and Teppei suffered an incomplete fracture in his right pinky toe on the 18th.
All three players are unlikely to return before the end of the regular season.
