Yomiuri Giants

  • Hayato Sakamoto suffered a broken nose when a ball he tried to catch on Wednesday glanced off his glove and struck him in the face.  He should be okay to play since the break did not require any surgical work. Source: Nikkan Sports 6/5/2014
  • Tetsuya Utsumi was examined at a hospital in Tokyo on Wednesday and diagnosed with inflammation in his left rotator cuff.

  • Akihito Fujii (right foot) is close to being ready to play in his first Ni-gun rehab game.  He took situational fielding practice on Tuesday and joined Ni-gun pre-game practices at Koshien Stadium on Wednesday.  He still has some pain in his foot, but nothing bad enough to keep him from playing in a rehab game to see how things feel.
