Does anyone know what the status is of the Tigers' Rookie-of-the-Year? I hear he's out with an injury of some kind. Details, anyone?

He broke his knee when he was hit by a pitch in a game against Chunichi last week. He'll be out for at least six weeks.

Actually, he wasn't hit by a pitch, but rather he fouled a ball off of the front of his tibia and fractured it. Hasn't put a kink in the Hanshin offense lately, though, with Arias starting to hit.

OK, I must've got it wrong. I'm pretty sure he was hit in the knee in one of those games, and I assumed that's when the injury occurred. Maybe it was a completely separate incident. Still "ouch" though.

Ouch! Thanks for the info.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
