The media learned on Sunday that Yuya Ishii will most likely miss the start of the regular season with a strain in his left biceps femoris.  Ishii suffered the injury during Ni-gun practices at Kamagaya on February 28.  An evaluation revealed he will require over two weeks for a full recovery.

Other players:

  • Shota Ono is still making his way back from an inversion sprain in his left ankle.  It is still uncertain if he will be ready for opening day.
  • Yoshiaki Fujioka is behind schedule and might also miss the start of the regular season.
