Seiichi Uchikawa was examined at a hospital in Fukuoka today and diagnosed with a strain in his right gluteus maximus muscle.  Uchikawa re-aggravated the injury while running to first on a grounder to third in the 6th inning of a game against Hanshin on the 23rd.  He will require about ten days of rest.  He was taken off the active roster today and will be eligible to return on June 5.
