TOKYO, Feb. 26 (23:24) Kyodo

Yomiuri Giants right-hander Seth Greisinger will leave for the
United States sometime soon to have his pitching elbow examined, the
club said Friday.

Greisinger is now unlikely to make the roster for the
season-opening series against the Yakult Swallows starting March 26
at Tokyo Dome.

He will return to Tokyo on Saturday from the team's training
camp in Miyazaki. The exact date of his departure for the United
States is not yet known.

Greisinger led the Central League in his first two seasons in
Japan and went 13-6 with a 3.47 ERA in 25 starts last year.
