Kenta Maeda left his start against the Softbank Hawks today after facing just seven batters and giving up six runs (five earned) on four hits and one walk.  He started feeling discomfort in his right side after giving up a three-run home run to Yuki Yanagita, the last batter he ended up facing.

After the game, Kenjiro Nomura told reporters that Maeda will be taken off the active roster on Sunday as a precaution.  The Carp do not feel it is a serious injury and believe he will be able to return in the minimum ten days.
