Yakult Swallows

Masanori Ishikawa left his start on Thursday against Rakuten with some tightness in his lower back.  The Swallows could take him off the active roster depending on how he is feeling over the next couple of days.  He also did give up four runs (all earned) on five hits over four innings of work and could use a change of pace at Ni-gun.
