The Giants announced today that Yoshinobu Takahashi will have surgery to treat his right middle finger extensor tendon dislocation within the next few days. The decision to go under the knife was made during a follow-up hospital visit earlier in the day. It is uncertain if he will be able to make it back to the active roster before the end of the season.
Takahashi suffered the injury during a game on the 24th against Chunichi. He was examined at a hospital in Tokyo on the 26th and diagnosed with the dislocation.
