The Fighters announced that 27-year-old catcher Masaya Ozaki had successful internal fixation surgery for a mandibular fracture.  Ozaki will remain hospitalized until the end of the month and will require about a month and a half for a full recovery.

Ozaki suffered the facture when he fouled a ball off his chin during a Ni-gun game against Yokohama on the 17th.
