Kenta Kurihara took a baseball off his face during fielding practice before today's exhibition game against Yokohama at Mazda Stadium.  He skipped the game and was examined at a Hiroshima hospital and diagnosed with a fractured nose.  He will require about two weeks for a full recovery.  While there is no set timetable for his return, he is expected to be ready for opening day.
