Kazuhiro Wada was hit by a pitch during his at bat in the 7th inning of tonight's game against the Hiroshima Carp. Wada was removed from the game and taken to a hospital in Nagoya for an evaluation. He was diagnosed with a fracture in his right scaphoid bone. No word on how long it might take for a full recovery.
"It's near the right thumb. I'll get it checked out again at another hospital tomorrow and decide what steps to take next," said Wada to reporters after the game.
