Softbank Hawks: Toru Hosokawa injures right calf

by on Aug.27, 2011 @ 2:36 am, under NPB

Toru Hosokawa injured his right calf during pre-game BP on Friday.  Even though he was penciled into the line-up, he couldn't make it to the field in the bottom of the 1st and was removed from the game.  Battery coach Tetsuya Matoyama told reporters it didn't look good and hinted at the possibility of Hosokawa having to be taken off the active roster on Saturday.  For now, he's essentially considered day-to-day.
