Hanshin Tigers: Craig Brazell taken off active roster

by on Aug.24, 2011 @ 4:37 pm, under NPB

Craig Brazell was taken off the active roster today after he got an MRI on his right leg and was diagnosed with an injury to his right biceps femoris muscle.  Brazell returned to Osaka after the examination and is scheduled to begin his rehab on the 25th.

Chief trainer Tatsuzo Tsunekawa told reporters that Brazell will probably need focus solely on rehab exercises during the first 3 days while Akinobu Mayumi said he had no idea how long Brazell would be out.

UPDATE 8/25 @ 3:06pm - It seems it'll take anywhere from 3 weeks to a month for Brazell to return to the active roster.  And at worst, he could end up being out until early October.
