Ryoji Aikawa took a batted foul ball of his right big toe (he was catching) during the second inning of Wednesday night's game against the Yokohama Bay Stars and was removed on defense in the 4th inning.  An examination at the hospital revealed a fracture in the distal phalanx of his right big toe that will require four weeks for a full recovery.

Aikawa will be taken off the active roster today.
