Shunsuke Watanabe left tonight's game against Rakuten after taking a batted ball of his right leg in the 5th inning.  He was evaluated at a hospital in Chiba and diagnosed with a bruise.  The Chiba Lotte Marines will likely remove Watanabe from the active roster in order to give him time to recover.
