Softbank Hawks: Jose Ortiz taken off active roster with pain in his left flank

by on Jun.16, 2011 @ 6:56 pm, under NPB

Jose Ortiz was taken off the active roster today due to pain in his left flank.  Ortiz was hit by a pitch in the area during last night's game against the Chunichi Dragons (Wei-Ying Chen on the mound).

UPDATE @ 10:25pm - Ortiz was actually checked out at a hospital in Nagoya last night, but with no improvement in his condition, he'll be getting checked out again at a hospital in Fukuoka.

FYI: Tsuyoshi Wada was also taken off the active roster today.  Not for any injury, but because he's not scheduled to pitch any more during Inter-league play.
