Chunichi Dragons: Masafumi Hirai injures right calf

by on Apr.10, 2012 @ 9:09 pm, under NPB

Masafumi Hirai had his right calf examined at a hospital in Nagoya today and was diagnosed an injury to his gastrocnemius muscle.  There is no timetable for how long it will take for a full recovery since there is still some inflammation in the area.  The team trainer figures it may take about a month.

Hirai suffered the injury while fielding a bunt during a Ni-gun game against Softbank on April 7.
