Dutch right-hander Rick van den Hurk isn’t going to play for the Samsung Lions in the upcoming Asia Series “International Tournament of Champions”. According to Honkbalsite.com he was left off the final roster with a minor arm injury. During the recent Korean Series, where his Lions overcame a 1-3 deficit in a best-of-seven series against the Doosan Bears, Van den Hurk was replaced after one inning in game six because of discomfort in his arm. He is also scheduled to attend the European Big League Tour in Rotterdam this weekend. Dutch outfielder Andruw Jones of the Rakuten Golden Eagles already opted out of the Asia Series as well due to obligations in Curacao.
