  • Chunichi's Daisuke Yamai became the eighth Central League pitcher to be ejected from a game for throwing a dangerous pitch this year. The eight ejections tied the league high for most dangerous pitch ejections in one season, set in 2006. Between the two leagues, eleven pitchers have been ejected for throwing dangerous pitches this season. That total is good for fourth on the all-time list, behind fifteen in 2006, fourteen in 2008, and twelve in 2013. Eleven pitchers were also ejected for throwing dangerous pitches in 2005.
