Softbank Hawks

  • Dae-Ho Lee fouled a ball off his left foot during pre-game batting practice on Sunday.  He made the starting line-up against Rakuten, but was replaced on defense in the 6th as a precaution (there was still some swelling). Source: Daily Sports 5/5/2014

Orix Buffaloes

  • Wily Mo Pena was replaced by a pinch-hitter in the 5th of Monday's game against Lotte because of pain in his lower back.  Pena may have tweaked the area when he swung the bat during his plate appearance in the 3rd.  The Buffaloes will wait to see how he is feeling on Tuesday before deciding what to do next.
