Rakuten Eagles: Satoshi Nagai leaves his start with an injury

by on Jul.03, 2011 @ 8:08 pm, under NPB

Satoshi Nagai started today's game against the Chiba Lotte Marines but was pulled after he grabbed his right shoulder in the 2nd inning (he gave up a lead-off single and had just finished striking out the second batter for the first out of the inning).  Nagai was later taken to a hospital and diagnosed with inflammation in his right infraspinatus muscle.

The Eagles will see how his shoulder is feeling after shutting him down for 2-3 days.

      From what I’ve read, it seems it isn’t that serious (could have been worse). A lot will depend on how much better he’s feeling after being shut down for 2-3 days.

      Now you have to hope that Tanaka doesn’t overexert himself and get hurt.
