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.
