Chunichi Dragons pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka took leave from his Central League club on Sunday in order to treat a right shoulder injury sustained when an overzealous fan pulled his arm last week.

Matsuzaka departed the Dragon’s preseason camp in Chatan, Okinawa Prefecture last Thursday, and will have an examination by the team’s medical staff on Tuesday after returning to Nagoya. The right-hander will likely miss the team’s season opener next month.
