Veteran Chunichi Dragons outfielder Kazuhiro Wada will be sidelined for more than a month after breaking a bone in his right wrist, he said Thursday.

The 42-year-old Wada is 15 hits shy of Japan’s elite 2,000 mark. He was hit by a pitch on the right thumb during Wednesday night’s game against the Hiroshima Carp and was diagnosed with a break of the navicular bone, the largest bone on the thumb side of the wrist.
