Rakuten Eagles: Iwamura, Rasner return to Sendai

by on Sep.17, 2011 @ 3:06 pm, under NPB

The Eagles announced today that both Akinori Iwamura and Darrell Rasner returned to Miyagi in order to get checked out at hospitals in Sendai -- Rasner felt tightness in his right hamstring during practice on the 16th and will be examined today; Iwamura needs additional tests on his left flank region (his test last night revealed no damage to the bones) and will be examined on the 19th (another report mentions the 20th).

While Iwamura was taken off the active roster today, the Eagles will wait to decide on Rasner until they find out more about what's wrong with him.
