Yomiuri Giants

Manny Acosta was taken off the active roster today with a right shoulder injury.  He will begin his rehab at Ni-gun on Friday.

Acosta complained of pain in his shoulder during a bullpen session on the 3rd and was examined at a hospital on the same day.  There is no set timetable for his return, but it seems the Giants think it could take more than ten days.

Chunichi Dragons

Akifumi Takahashi was examined at a hospital in Nagoya today and diagnosed with periarthritis in his left shoulder.  There is no timetable for his recovery.  The condition does not appear to be serious.  He will be able to play catch once the inflammation subsides.
