The Orix Buffaloes on Tuesday deactivated outfielder Stefan Romero after he was ruled out for four to five weeks with a bone bruise in his left knee.

The 28-year-old American suffered the injury in Saturday’s 4-3 win away to the Chiba Lotte Marines when he struck his knee on the wall at Zozo Marine Stadium. He did not play in Orix’s loss on Sunday.
