Kyuji Fujikawa was diagnosed with a bone contusion on his right knee thighbone/femur and will likely be taken off the active roster on Wednesday.

Said Fujikawa, "I thought I could pitch through it, but I did not pitch well against Lotte.  It is worse than I originally thought."

With regards to whether or not he will return in ten days, he replied, "Coming back as soon as possible is important, but I also need to 100%."
