Hirotoshi Kitagawa was taken out of today's game in the 7th inning when he hurt his left leg while rounding first base.  Kitagawa had to be helped off the field and initial reports are saying that he suffered an injury in his left Achilles tendon.  While nothing is certain right now, it seems he may require surgery to repair a ruptured tendon.

Kitagawa will get the leg checked out within the next day or so.
