by on May.12, 2011 @ 7:42 pm, under NPB

Yoshinobu Takahashi was taken off the active roster (4/29) after he suffered an injury to his left flank when he banged into a wall while tracking down a fly ball during a game against the Yakult Swallows on 4/26.  Takahashi was checked out at a hospital earlier today (because there wasn't a lot improvement) and was diagnosed with three rib fractures (left side) and likely won't be able to return to action until the end of June.
