Chihiro Kaneko was taken off the active roster today. Kaneko felt discomfort in his right elbow on Friday and was examined at a hospital in Kobe today. MRI scans revealed inflammation. There is currently no timetable for his return; the team will take it day-by-day.
Kei Igawa could be called up to take Kaneko's next turn in the rotation.
