It appears the Hanshin Tigers will be taking Kenji Jojima off the active roster today in order to give him time to recover from a right elbow injury.  According to the information released by the Tigers, Jojima first started feeling pain in his right elbow 2 weeks ago but managed to play through it.  But since the pain wasn't improving, they decided it would be best to send him down to Naruohama (beginning on Saturday) so that he can focus all of his energy on getting back to 100%.
