Yuya Hasegawa to miss Final Stage due to HBP to head?

It appears the Softbank Hawks want to play it safe with Yuya Hasegawa after an HBP to the head on Sunday.  While nothing is known for sure at this point, it isn't out of the realm of possibility that he'll miss some postseason games.  What the Hawks will most likely do is take things day by day.

For now, it seems there are essentially three possibilities for Hasegawa: 1) he'll be fine and manage to get some practice in before the start of the Final Stage, 2) the Hawks will decide he needs more rest and won't get any practice in before the start of the Final Stage, 3) out of concern for his health, he missed some / all of the Final Stage.
