According to Nikkan Sports, Hitoki Iwase is scheduled to get an MRI on his left shoulder and elbow today.

Iwase was taken off the active roster on Thursday and reported to the Ni-gun training facilities at Nagoya Stadium on Friday (he did not do any workouts that involved picking up a baseball).

Said Iwase of his condition, "It is not discomfort, more like a feeling that something does not feel quite right.  I suppose it would have been better if I could have worked through this [at Ichi-gun], but I also was not pitching well.  I do not want to create any more problems for the team."
