Tsuyoshi Kikuchihara was removed from Tuesday night's game against the Yakult Swallows after he injured his left Achilles tendon while pitching in the 7th inning.

Said pitching coach Yutaka Ono, "There's a chance he'll miss a good chunk of time.  But it happened so there's nothing we can do about it now."

Kikuchihara is scheduled for a hospital visit on Wednesday.
