Orix Buffaloes: Chihiro Kaneko goes under the knife

by on Feb.09, 2011 @ 10:32 pm, under NPB

Chihiro Kaneko underwent surgery on his right elbow in Kobe today and is scheduled to be discharged from the hospital tomorrow.  The stitches will likely be removed about a week after that.  Kaneko will then return to Miyakojima, Okinawa around the 18th to begin his rehabilitation.  Assuming no road bumps, he should be able to pick up a baseball in about month and could be ready to pitch in games within 2-3 months.
