Hiroki Ueno took a batted ball hit by Dae-Ho Lee off his upper right arm during Wednesday's game against the Orix Buffaloes. He was removed from the game immediately after the play and will most likely be taken off the active roster on Thursday.
Takeshi Kanazawa left the game after he crashed into the fence in front of the dugout while chasing after a pop fly in foul territory in the 7th inning. Tsutomu Ito told reporters Kanzawa suffered a bruise on his left knee. He should be ok to play.
