Sho Aranami was not only thrown out trying to steal third with two outs in the 7th inning (he ran on his own, there was no signal from the bench) against Hiroshima tonight, he also had to be removed from the game because he hurt his nose and right cheek.   He will undergo a full examination on Thursday.

Josh Whitesell (Lotte) was held out of tonight's game against Nippon Ham because of pain in his right wrist.  While he was technically available as a bat off the bench, the team gave him the night off as a precaution.

The Carp announced today that Yusuke Nomura was diagnosed with a minor injury in his right glenoid labrum.  Nomura has already started playing catch (began on the 16th) and the team does not expect the injury to sideline him for an extended period of time.
