Why isn't Balentien (Swallows) Playing?

Discussion in the Ask the Commish forum
Why isn't Balentien (Swallows) Playing?
I was wondering why Balentien is not playing the last couple of games? Is he injured?

Yes, Balentien tore his right gluteal muscle on August 1st and was sent to the farm the following day.

I'd recommend listing to John E. Gibson's Japan Baseball Weekly Podcasts (found on Gibson-san's blog). Both of your questions made for very good discussions between John and Jim Allen when the respective issues arose.

Hope this helps.

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.
