Hanshin Tigers: Matt Murton given the night off

by on Aug.05, 2011 @ 7:52 pm, under NPB

Matt Murton underwent an examination at a hospital in Osaka today (he was also checked out in Tokyo last night as well).  Tests apparently didn't reveal any problems (specifics haven't been revealed and he doesn't appear to have a fever or to be suffering any pain) but Murton was given the day off for rest (he didn't attend pre-game practices at Nagoya Dome).

The Tigers will see how Murton is doing tomorrow before deciding what steps to take next.
