Yomiuri Giants: Hisayoshi Chono has a fracture in his left cheek bone

by on Aug.08, 2011 @ 9:17 pm, under NPB

Hisayoshi Chono returned to Tokyo from Hiroshima today in order to get additional tests and was diagnosed with a fracture in his left cheek bone.  Chono will not be removed from the active roster for the time being but will not be with the team tomorrow (it has already been decided he'll get the day off).

UPDATE 8/9 @ 9:40am - Chono probably won't play in any games until the Hiroshima series (at the earliest) that begins on the 12th at Tokyo Dome.
