The media learned on Sunday that Yuya Ishii will most likely miss the start of the regular season with a strain in his left biceps femoris.  Ishii suffered the injury during Ni-gun practices at Kamagaya on February 28.  An evaluation revealed he will require over two weeks for a full recovery.

Other players:

  • Shota Ono is still making his way back from an inversion sprain in his left ankle.  It is still uncertain if he will be ready for opening day.
  • Yoshiaki Fujioka is behind schedule and might also miss the start of the regular season.

Yoshiaki Fujioka was taken off the active roster on June 28 with liver problems.  He was hospitalized and was recently discharged on the 26th.  He will begin rehab work at the Saitozaki training facilities, but will take it easy over the next two months.  There is a good chance he will miss the rest of the season.
