Softbank Hawks: Toru Hosokawa taken off active roster with left knee injury

by on Jul.06, 2011 @ 4:32 pm, under NPB

The Hawks decided to take Toru Hosokawa off the active roster after he had his left knee checked out at a hospital.  There are no specifics on the injury, but Hosokawa did tell reporters before heading to Narita Airport (he's returning to Fukuoka today) that the injury wasn't that bad and that he felt he'd be able to return fairly quickly.

Hosokawa will begin his rehab tomorrow at the Saitozaki training facilities.  Hiroaki Takaya was called up to take Hosokawa's spot on the active roster.
