- Tomoyuki Sugano first started feeling discomfort in his right middle finger when he hit a grounder to second during an at bat in the 5th inning of a game against Yakult at Tokyo Dome on July 16. He pitched in three games after that: second game of the All-Star series on July 19, July 25 against Chunichi, and August 1 against Hiroshima. He was examined at a hospital on Monday because the injury was not showing signs of improvement. He will most likely be shut down for a little while. Source: Nikkan Sports 8/5/2014 ...
