The media learned on Friday that Ryohei Kawamoto (right chest) and Kenichi Matsuoka (right hamstring) could end up missing a good chunk of time.  The chief trainer told reporters that both players suffered injuries that require more than just a few days and hinted that it could be a while before they return.

The two join Ryoji Aikawa (right big toe), Yoshinori Sato (working through issues), Chang-Yong Lim (working through issues), Yuki Shichijo (coming back from left knee surgery in the winter), and Kentaro Kyuko (coming back from left hand surgery) in a growing list of players that have no set timetable for their returns.
