The Hanshin Tigers took 1st round draft pick Shintaro Fujinami off the active roster today with back tightness.
"[Fujinami] is practicing as usual and he can play catch. It is not a big deal. It is just some tightness. We will monitor him over the next couple/few days and decide when he will pitch next," said Yutaka Wada to reporters.
Atsushi Nomi is slated to get Fujinami's start against Yakult on Sunday.
