Eiichi Koyano was taken off the active roster today after he was diagnosed with a biceps femoris muscle strain in his left leg.  Koyano will probably miss the rest of Inter-league play since he'll need around 3 weeks for a full recovery.

Takahiro Imanami was called up to take over Koyano's spot on the active roster.

Regarding who will take Koyano's spot in the order, Masataka Nashida jokingly told reporters he decided to go with Sho Nakata after reading about how he a strong candidate to bat 4th.
