Yakult Swallows: Ryohei Kawamoto likely to miss the rest of the regular season

Ryohei Kawamoto had his right ankle examined at a hospital yesterday and was diagnosed with a ruptured anterior talofibular ligament.  Kawamoto will spend the next week or so resting and will probably get the ankle re-examined again.  It could take 2-3 weeks before he's able to start a rehab program.  At worst, he may also require surgery.
