The Buffaloes decided to take Takahiro Okada off the active roster today with a left hamstring strain. The chief team trainer told reporters that Okada will likely needs three weeks for a full recovery.

Okada suffered the injury during his at bat in the 8th inning against the Rakuten Eagles on April 26.  He was diagnosed with a hamstring strain on Friday, but the Buffaloes were hoping he might be able to DH or be a bat off the bench before taking him off the active roster today.
