Yomiuri Giants: Yoshiyuki Kamei diagnosed with a fracture in his right ring finger

The Yomiuri Giants announced today that Yoshiyuki Kamei suffered a fracture in his right finger while taking grounders during pre-game practice yesterday.  The Giants were taking a wait and see approach with the finger and when they saw that the swelling didn't improve over night, they had Kamei get the finger examined at a Hiroshima hospital today.

While Kamei was in the dugout for today's game, he'll probably be taken off the active roster tomorrow.

Kamei actually played in yesterday's game (started at third and batted sixth) and went 3-for-4 and was a single away from a cycle.
