Chunichi Dragons

The swelling in Brad Bergesen's right index finger was probably from a bug bite he suffered at some point before the start of the game.  He was taken off the active roster today.

Softbank Hawks

The Hawks took Yuki Yanagita off the active roster today after he hurt his right shoulder while making a diving catch in the 5th inning of Tuesday's game against the Nippon Ham Fighters.  He is scheduled to have shoulder checked out at a hospital in Fukuoka on the 28th.  The team thinks Yanagita could miss two to three weeks.
