Pete LaForest will be returning to the United States on Tuesday with pain in his right abdominal area. The Lions were planning on using LaForest during a practice game against the Hiroshima Carp on Wednesday, but the pain was apparently too severe.
I'm not really sure where this leaves LaForest at this point. Based on the things I've read, the Lions did seem impressed with him. I guess a lot will depend on how severe the injury is and whether or not LaForest is willing to return to Japan to continue his tryout (whenever that might be).
The Sponichi article I linked to did mention that the team still has not made any decisions on LaForest.
