The media learned on Monday that Jun Matsui suffered a fracture in his left forearm.  He will likely require about five months for a full recovery.

Matsui was hit by a pitch during a Ni-gun game against Yomiuri on Sunday.  He was taken to the hospital for an examination on Monday and was diagnosed with a fracture in his left ulna.  He has opted not to go under the knife.

FYI: Matsui is currently leading both leagues with twelve HBPs.
