Naomichi Donoue (CHU) was hit by a pitch on his left hand during a Phoenix League game against Yomiuri earlier today.

With the bases loaded and two outs in the 5th, Donoue took an inside pitch off his left hand and was immediately taken out of the game.  Fortunately for the Dragons, testing revealed no structural damage and Donoue was diagnosed with a simple contusion.

In a similar situation in the first inning (bases loaded and 2 out), Donoue cleared the bases with a 3-run double to right-center.
